Within a theme, a user is able to set the grub title to any string.  However,
if you are constrained to a system where running a theme isn't possible
(display over serial for example) then the title is hard coded to the GRUB
version string.  I have attached a patch that permits the user to change the
title string by setting an environment variable called 'title' (the default is
still to display GRUB version string).  Documentation patched as well.
