Not sure.. does 16 work on all machines?  What about old PCs that don't
support VESA at all?  I think we should have some way to probe all this
stuff before enabling gfxterm.

The X people use discover and xresprobe.  Perhaps we could do that too?

As short term, if you think 640x480x16 is a reasonable default, we could set
that.  But since this part of code belongs to upstream, I'd like to see if
they have some comments about it (forwarding).

GRUB maintainers (specialy daChaac), do you have any comments on this?
