That’s one of the methods; Robert’s new GRUB change, as well as my
“manifold-boot” method which also works with GRUB2, are others. We
looked at them in Grml; the ISOHYBRID variant used to not work with
stock Debian packaging though that may have changed, mail firstname.lastname@example.org
for details. It basically depends on whether you want SYSLINUX or
GRUB as loader (I think GRUB offers more flexibility which can be
desirable on d-i).
Sometimes they [people] care too much: pretty printers [and syntax highligh-
ting, d.A.] mechanically produce pretty output that accentuates irrelevant
detail in the program, which is as sensible as putting all the prepositions
in English text in bold font. -- Rob Pike in "Notes on Programming in C"
