if you think grub is up to the task and that there would be any advantage in 
using it, feel free to:
a) start a discussion about it on users@
b) port grub to DragonFly and submit a patch once it works

I surely see right now more trouble than advantages in switching boot loader. 
Apart from the fact that a part of the bootloader would need to remain, 
because, afaik, grub doesn't support UFS, or booting BSD kernels or anything; 
it'd need to chainload a BSD loader.
