Yeah I have mine set to look for pvgrub and then grub.cfg and then
menu.lst and then grub.conf, in /boot and / of every block device,
but it would start at the first block device and stop as soon as it
found a match, so I think it would do the same.

There is probably a way to find all matches and present a menu,
instead of stopping at the first one. All the memdisk is doing is
building a grub config that chains to another grub binary or loads
another valid grub config.

Could maybe ask on the grub mailing list?

I think it still would involve building a new grub binary though.
