Oh, new feature `config' in syslinux 3.50. Great! I missed this.
Many thanks for idea!
I have tried your vesamenu boot. It's nice option. I think, that config
files for the vesamenu could be generated besides those for the bare
pxelinux, so an administrator of a network can choose between (by
symlinking the right default or referencing it from his upper level menu
or so). Such modification can be merged into d-i trunk without problem
Thanks for your effort.
