grub.cfg is the grub2 file, whereas pvgrub is currently grub1 (sometimes called 
grub legacy). Both the syntax and the location of the config file differs 
between the two versions of grub.

I'm not sure if anyone is working on pvgrub2, I thought I'd heard a rumour of 

There is a tool, pv-grub-menu.lst, which has been proposed for Debian[0] which 
helps you create and manage a legacy style menu.lst.

I think grub-legacy is also still in Debian, but you might need to explicitly 
install it rather than grub2.
