Yes, I imagine that a lot of people would find it useful. Spend an
afternoon with linuxdoc-sgml, a recent source tree, find and grep, and
you will probably make a lot of people happy.

Already exists. See the BootPrompt-HowTo, which has this covered. I have
yet to add all the new v2.0.x options to it yet, but here is a partial
list of what I will be updating when I get a few spare jiffies. If you
see any I have missed, drop me a note.
