We really need to finish the push in F12 to get liveusb-creator working
for all cases (including command line) so that we can kick the silly
shell script to the curb as liveusb-creator has its own homepage, etc.

Also, I want to look a bit more at isohybrid to see if we can build iso
images that can just be dd'd, at least for the case of
boot.iso/netinst.iso
