is the type of documentation which I think you would like to see in the
present grub. Unlike most of the other man pages listed at the bottom of
the page it has not made it there. Perhaps it is waiting for someone to
update and maintain it.

Of the cited 213 modules about 80 concern commands. These are documented
in the info manual, So things aren't as bad as they look. :)
