It's not like there's a lot of love for grub 2, but bootloaders are
really pretty hard, and no one is maintaining grub 1, and it doesn't
handle UEFI, so.... I'm not sure it's worth your trouble.

If you really want something lightweight (and don't need UEFI), you can
replace grub with extlinux/syslinux.
