See also Debian Bug Report #690538.

A patch to add support for GRUB_ENABLE_SUBMENUS config variable is attached.

(file #28369, file #28370)

I think it would be sane to include a configuration variable like GRUB_DISABLE_SUBMENUS in the configuration scripts, which would produce a flat boot list instead of the current tree-like structure when enabled.

Performing a quick search on the Internet you will find several attempts to disable the use of submenus, which, as of now, can only be remedied by manually modifying the related /etc/grub.d/ scripts.
