	Hi Mika,

  I've tested your new 0.3.0 version, it works fine for grml
ISO detection, and the GRML system boot fine. The only remaining gotcha
is actually what you tell : the CUSTOM_BOOTOPTIONS remains with quotes
in the kernel command line, and thus is misunderstood.

  I wonder where is the file /boot/grub/loopback.cfg
referenced in the Grub boot stanza : in the ISO itself ?

  Now I will have to play with your nice tool, learning how to use it
and … how to customize it !
