Hey Sven,

How are you doing?

GRUB2 support was disabled by now since we're near of Etch
release. You can reenable it and rebuild for testing.

If you want I can send you a source package ready but I think it'll be
trivial for you. Currently we have grub-installer only bult for i386
and amd64 but after etch is release I want to move to grub2 for
default installations and then change the grub-installer archs.
