My bad...

When I proposed adding a framework for building GRUB modules externally, I
was expecting it would end up being used.  I had grub-extras in mind.

But it became much simpler and straightforwarded to build grub-extras by
overlaiing it into GRUB tree and doing a one-line change in GRUB

So I wonder if there's anyone reliing on this.  I believe there isn't, and I
noticed that it's a nuissance because it installs headers in /usr/include which
may later be dragged in to a newer version of GRUB, causing breakage.

So I admit having a bad idea and propose to undo it.  Maintaining features is
costly, we should only maintain features that are useful.
