Here's a short explanation:

 - Checkout d-i source.

 - Apply my patch and build grub-installer udeb.

 - Put the udeb in installer/build/localudebs, and add it to the cd with:
     echo grub-installer > installer/build/pkg-lists/local

 - Build a netboot image as normal.

 - Boot the resulting image in expert mode, and when queried about using grub2
   answer Yes.

 - Check wether it boots (and have a rescue disk at hand!)
