Bug#558688: live-helper: support hybrid iso/usb-hdd images
as Daniel, being the syslinux maintainer in Debian, already knows,
syslinux >=3.72 supports some kind of hybrid images which can either
be burnt on CD-ROM or raw-copied to a disk (USB stick, etc.); this is
practically achieved by post-processing an ISO image using the bundled
jup.. it's on my temporary todo since quite some time..
I'm thinking of implementing this as an optional step done in the
binary.sh script created and run by lh_binary_iso.
as said on irc some weeks ago, it should be an own binary image type,
iso-hybrid, so that we offer to build 'plain' iso images (-b iso) and
hybrid ones (-b iso-hybrid), which in turn needs first some
modifications in lh_binary_iso to factor out the common stuff.
once iso-hyrbid is ready, it will be the default image type for squeeze
and newer images.
