This is not grub's business.
We already provide an option to chainload grub2 from grub-legacy.
I think that's enough for the vast majority of users.
Just backing up /boot and restoring it wouldn't help.
The MBR and in case of grub-legacy also the embed are between MBR and
1st partition would also need to be backuped.
And why should we make a mini-OS which restores the backup
Live CDs can be used fine to restore it.
You only need to make the backup yourself.
