No, but refit is capable of booting legacy system (perhaps using efi
service), and have a pretty nice interface.Refit is quite smart in
finding efi image as well, you can just put them in the root or
/efi/xxx/ directory and they will show up in the boot menu

However, since refit 0.10, it uses multi arch efi image containing
i386 and x86_64. I have tried the efi image created by grub and they
don't boot at all (neither does refit 0.9 and previous), it seems
apple have changed the firmware to support this structure only.
