The Change page does not make it clear: is it possible to opt out of the
change, i.e. keep the current menu structure after grub2-mkconfig has run?
Yes, the Change page isn't clear. What I was thinking was to have a
GRUB_ENABLE_SIMPLE_MENU option in /etc/default/grub that would control
how the /etc/grub.d/* snippets would generate the grub menu. So users
can opt-in by setting it to true and re-running grub2-mkconfig again.
Conversely, users may opt-out by removing GRUB_ENABLE_SIMPLE_MENU from
/etc/default/grub (or not setting it to true) and running
grub2-mkconfig again. It's not possible to opt-out after
grub2-mkconfig as run since that it's what generates the grub2.cfg
that will contain the menu entries. But it's possible to re-generate
the grub2.cfg file.
I also think that Anaconda should only set
GRUB_ENABLE_SIMPLE_MENU=true for Workstation, like we do with the GRUB
menu auto hide feature. I'll update the Changes page to reflect this.
