Hi there,

What is the recommended way for binary distributors of GRUB to support
PC/BIOS and EFI at the same time?  Is it possible to build a mixed binary
that supports both systems somehow? (and if it isn't, are there plans or
ongoing work for that?)

Also, which are the cpu platforms that may use EFI?  From what I could find,
it seems that:

  - ia32 doesn't have it
  - ia64 always has it
  - amd64 only has it on Intel-Macs, and will have it on more devices in
    the future

Am I missing something?
