AFAICT, it's grub.cfg that has to work around using two commands instead of one.

Therefore grub-mkconfig has to generate a longer grub.cfg (not sure
how this makes grub-mkconfig uglier), but that's an incomplete
assessment.  There's also a different burden placed on user-edited
configs and usage of the grub console, correct?

I don't think that the suggestion was meant to save a few bytes in
grub-mkconfig.  I think it was suggesting a nicer interface for users
working in the console.
