No. It is not sane to have multiple bootloaders installed on one 
machine. Requiring the ability to do so adds a significant amount of 
extra complexity to the tools associated with it for no useful benefit. 
Just install the grub package in the guest, and chroot into the guest if 
you need to run grub-install there.
