First of all, thank you for the great contribution! I guess I really must 
finish writing up the specification now...

About the headers, I don't like the location, either. As I said before, the 
purpose of GRUB is not to provide a library. Even if code can be reused, this 
is out of our concern. And, more importantly, the reason why the header files 
are put under grub/ is to avoid conflicts with system headers. Although the 
probablity of having such a conflict on multiboot.h, I still prefer to 
segregate our own headers under grub.
