Post subject:  Grub2 support for the UBCD (or boot from HDD partition)

It would be really nice if the UBCD updated its usage of Grub1 to Grub2. Grub1 is hardly used today and far not as feature rich as Grub2.
* If Grub2 was used then it would simply be possible to dd the UBCD.iso into a HDD partition and then boot from it via the grub.cfg that would reside on the iso. Readonly hard disks (or SSDs with ro-switch) are the modern alternative towards carrying around a bunch of CDs/DVDs/BDs.
* If Grub2 was available on the UBCD this could come to the rescue when the boot loader would have been overwritten/destroyed by accident on the hard disk.
-> the only thing that would need to be done is rewrite the following commands to use multiple files instead:
write --offset=15 /bin/setargs.bat ubcdcmd=keydisk\r\n
It is a pitily no more available with Grub2.
