Last I knew, grub2 was a dead project.  At least it was when I looked at
it about 2 or 3 years ago.  It hadn't had a single code update in over 2
years when I looked at it.  Has that changed?

According to the SVN repo for grub2, its just the opposite!

SVN repo: http://svn.savannah.gnu.org/viewvc/trunk/grub2/?root=grub

In the repo, the latest change was 42hrs ago. It is far from dead. A video subsystem has been implemented from the GSoC 2008 as well as some usb support I believe.

Well, it was a "fancy menu" thing implemented using the video subsystem...
