I use grub since a long time and the also grub's ability to show a bootsplash 
(splashimage= in grub.conf). The bootsplash disappears after starting the 
boot process of an OS, so I wouldn't get a bootsplash while loading 

Nevertheless is it a good idea to install grub to get rid of the boring 
Dragonfly bootloader ;-)

It *appears* to me, that DragonFly switches for a split of a second into 
graphic mode (a ultra-short flickering on the screen), but then switches back 
to text output.
