Yes multiboot 1 for i386-pc is very much still supported and
functional (one thing I made sure wouldn't break with all this new
stuff). I went through and changed a lot of the function declarations
to match up with GCS...many where not. Hopefully this will really
kickstart things in the Multiboot 2 arena and start to get things
moving in this area. There will be patches to probably change variable
names and some fixes to come in the future. For now the base
functional code is now there :-)

Will grub2 still be able to boot multiboot(1) binaries on x86?
