I think this makes all the essential stuff. Most of important of it is your lexer rewrite.

In the future we could find other features are needed, but no need to keep the task open for that IMO. New tasks can be added when necessary.

Thanks for your effort!

As of now GRUB script has support for for, while and until loops.

I asked one of my friends to implement "elif" support, just to pull him into GRUB ;) If he couldn't I will add this myself.

Logic for passing arguments ($0, $1, etc) to functions is not there, which is what I am currently working on.

Other than these, what more features are necessary to make GRUB script "complete"?

BVK is working on that. I mark it as high priority, however it is a long-term task because of its testing period. It is unlikely that it can make it to 1.98.
