Theoretically, of course. I didn't implement it, simply because I didn't think 
this was so important.

I would say that this is still hard. Especially, I miss security-related 
features. They are easy to implement, but I postponed it, because I was 
planning to rewrite the menu code significantly. But I still don't get much 
time to perform this, and I have no idea on when I will be able to.

Besides that, it is really necessary to check what workarounds for buggy 
BIOSes are missing in GRUB 2. The current bootstrap code on PC is based on 
somewhere around GRUB 0.96, so it is a bit outdated.
