I fear that this is too complicated for many of the users of my tiny
distribution. I like the idea of these hybrid images. You just have
one file and can use it for a CD or an USB stick. It is more or less
easy to handle.

Yes, I think your solution is more solid than the hybrid images. But
the handling is more difficult, I think.
The problem is that these USB images are preferred more and more.
And for me, it is much more comfortable to write my image to a USB
stick than burning a CD for each test loop of the distribution.
But thanks for your hint, anyway!
