It looks like this doesn't belong to the patch. However, I'm interested
in this for the GNU/Mach Xen support, where we would need to have
several modules, with several command lines.  Could you give more


You're right, those comments snuck in from another project. An interest of our team is domain decomposition. Members of the team created a domain builder separate from dom0 (conceptually similar to Derek Murray's recent project based on Rolf Neugebauer's "initial domains" patch) that accepts grub modules as input. So, your suspicion is correct that the comments don't belong in this patch and are related to modifications used to accommodate several modules and command line arguments.

Thanks for catching my mistake. I also welcome such an attentive critique of the proposed grouping functionality. :)
