Almost. Couple of VBE2+ driver features are not implemented yet. But
they should not limit much of going forward with implementing other

One issue that needs thinking is theming of GRUB, this includes colors
and visual appearance and is also closely related to designing new menu
system. What I would like to see is that that now as there is base work
done on video side, someone could continue on menu side so I could do
some other stuff :). I can of course help on menu stuff too.

There has been at lease couple of interested people on this in past and
I would like them to step ahead :)
