Just out of curiosity, what's wrong with BTX + loader?
It's working quite well for me, and I like the fact that
it is scriptable so you can do whatever you want, e.g.
create your own menus and so on.  (Admittedly FORTH is
not the most intuitive language to program in, but you
get used to it.)

GRUB2 also supports scripts, but it's rather limited
in comparison.  Also, it's not very well documented (as
far as I can tell), and most of it is under GPL v3.

BTW, if you want to use GRUB for some reason, it is able
to chain-load the BSD loader just fine.  So there's no
reason to get rid of BTX + loader.

Just my 2 cents.

I would prefer to put some money on keeping loader.  :-)
