You could implement a color command, which does the same as the color
command in GRUB Legacy.  All terminals have support for the color
command.  Although I am not really sure if it is completely compatible
with what you are used to.

Although, it would be better to implement what Okuji proposed a while
ago.  Are you willing to work on this?  It might be fun to do so :-).

If having a color command means that GRUB 2 will be used more, I am
willing to add such command.  Okuji, do you object?  But I am only
willing to add this if the Debian people ensure me that they will
switch to whatever fancy graphics system we implement in the future,
when it is ready ;-).
