I'm not familiar with this part of GRUB.  But based on what you say, I think
before we venture into significant redesign of the parser we'd have to evaluate
what do we gain with it.

If it's just to support \ in comments, I think it's not worth the hassle to
implement and later debug any problems it creates.
