As others are saying, it really is rather hard to determine what you are
trying to do, so I have hung back.

Again, as others are hinting, it is not clear WHY you want to do this. All
that is clear to me, is that you have hit on 'this' as 'the way' to solve
your problem, but you need help because you are not clear what 'this' is.

Perhaps you would tell us what you 'business problem' is, ie WHY you want to
do this? That way, the seasoned hands with GRUB will understand what you are
trying to do and will probably come up with a way, if there is one. And
people with a different slant on your problem might be able to suggest other
approaches?

Would this be any good to you?
