Hybrid Live Images

  To the hardworking Devs and ISO-builders,
     Please, that's pretty please with sugar on top, can we have 
hybrid .ISOs for the expected new batch of live CDs/DVDs with TDE 
R14.0.2??   My reasons for asking ....
   1.  Many modern PCs and most laptop/netbooks do not have an optical 
   2.  I know there are utilities for writing an ISO to a USB-stick but 
they are not particularly user-friendly.  eg. unetbootin is a total 
PITA.  Besides a simple "sudo dd if=path-to-hybrid of=/dev/usb-stick" 
is trivial and works as expected.
   3.  Boot and run from a USB-stick is much faster than any CD/DVD so 
demonstrating to potential new adopters is a better experience.

Thanks in antic,
