I'd prefer to support embedding filesystems in core.img instead.  This
solves the problem for every situation instead of just PC boot media
(e.g. LinuxBIOS ELF payload image).

Anyway, as long as root privileges aren't made necessary, I'm fine with
grub-mkrescue creating a filesystem (one saner than FAT, preferably ;-).
