GRUB supports booting from USB sticks (from GRUB perspective, they're the
same as normal hard drives), if you install it using grub-install with
appropiate --root-directory parameter.

For non-root generation of USB images, grub-setup requires some adjustment.
It's somewhere in my TODO but I haven't got around to do this yet.

Seeing that it's important to you, I think I'll be able to allocate some
time next week to take care of this.
