making available usb usable iso's without using livecd-iso-to-disk or liveusb-creator



we were talking on this list a few weeks back about making live spins available in a usb format instead of just an iso and it was said that it would incur more work and that because of the script and program mentioned in the title there was no need, well it turns out that mandriva have made iso's that are both usb and cdr compatible, all that's needed to put the iso on usb is a dd command,

dd if=foo.iso of=/dev/usb-diskname bs=8M

for more info check here >> http://wiki.mandriva.com/en/2009.1_RC_2#Hybrid_ISOs

is this something that fedora would consider?

i don't know if that this is new info or not, or how they do it but i thought it interesting and i think all distros should head this way for live releases.
