i then would just set the timeout to 1, so that the menu doesn't get
shown. or, if you don't wont any menu at all, include custom templates
in config/templates.

that's better than using the buggy non-menu thing that live-build does
(and gets removed anyway 3.x, so i'm not so keen on fixing it, we've not
used that in ages (means, that was only in use for etch)).

that's indifferent - use only one at the time. particulary because lenny
and squeeze have 2.x, but sid has 3.x.

you can still do whatever you did before, but you'll do it through a
local templates (config/templates), or through syslinux-themes packages
(rather than /usr/share/live/build/templates) for non trivial changes
(trivial is e.g. timeout changes).
