Some of our commands use --no-floppy.  Also supported in GRUB Legacy (by 'find'

people will mind if GRUB spends a few ms on them.

I don't know if it's relevant... but there is a situation that is maybe similar when my MacBook boots up (before it even gets to GRUB), if there's a CD in the drive, it wastes about 15 extra seconds spinning it up to look at it, even if I'm not booting from CD. So that might be a sort of thing to watch out for, when making GRUB search?
