My application already its own version of the Syslinux installer [1], 
and simply requires the relevant ldlinux.sys file to be provided.

At the moment, I embed ldlinux.sys from Syslinux 4.06 and 5.10 [2]. If 
ldlinux.sys was present in any shape of form on future 5.x based 
ISOLINUX images (such as appended at the end of isolinux.bin), I could 
simply pick up that file, and install it as if it had been embedded in 
the app.
