Replace the config-generating scripts to generate a minimalist grub2 config
Installs alternate scripts in /etc/grub.d
This is intended for people who know how to configure their bootloader, and want to customize the configuration
Probably useful for all of us, who would rather stick with grub1 but really can't because it is unmaintained, gets thrown out of distros and often does not work on modern HW.
The default configuration, generated by the scripts shipped with grub in /etc/grub.d, is very generic and very complicated. It hurts to modify it by hand or use the resulting menu on a laggy serial console.
