Implementing UFS2 Filesystem Support

I've been wanting to try out the latest FreeBSD 5-CURRENT series, and so far the only thing holding me back is I can't use my favorite bootloader (GRUB) with it. So, I have a little programming experience and would like to implement it if possible. I did a little checking around and I found that (from a reading standpoint) UFS2 is merely UFS with 64-bit addressing, and that the FFS directory structure layer on top of that was unchanged. Thus, this seems to be a relatively easy fix. I hope ;-) So, if anyone is reading this, please point me in the right direction for what files in GRUB I should be looking at. Thanks.
