I don't agree with this. chainloader and ntldr don't share the same
syntax: chainloader expects a bootsector whereas ntldr expects an
ntldr ot bootmgr file. GRUB2 is done to break with bad design
decisions of GRUB1 one of them being "kernel" command. GRUB4DOS
follows GRUB1 on this subject.
Additionally people may want to embed chainloader or ntldr into
core.img to be able to have an emergency boot method. For this reason
I consider we should split functionality into 2 modules which requires
2 different commands
