Hi Colin,

More important than the format, is that we need a basic theme that only
depends on the fonts we currently provided.  Of course, this can be improved
as long as the new fonts are free (patches against the build system welcome),
but for now we only build single-size unifont.

(Aside from that, adding new fonts would introduce a delay for distributors
as they need to add new packages, get them approved, etc.  So in the interest
in bringing gfxmenu to mainstream as soon as possible, I would _strongly_
recommend to use the existing fonts for now)

Also, if you'd like to make an official GRUB theme with GNU-based image set,
you're more than welcome.
