I support the requested enhancement.

I suggest a selection on where to install grub2-efi. The two choices would be
"In NVRAM" and "In \EFI\Boot" (or perhaps that should be "/boot/efi/EFI/Boot".

The default should be "In NVRAM". It should be possible to select both.

If I were installing opensuse in a portable USB drive, then I would probably
want grub2-efi to only be installed in "/boot/efi/EFI/Boot" so that I would
choose booting the device at a firmware prompt when the drive is plugged in.

I'm undecided on whether selecting "neither" should be allowed. Presumably,
that choice, if allowed, would still create the directory
"/boot/efi/EFI/opensuse" and add the files there, in addition to building
"/boot/grub2/grub.cfg".
