As long as replacing vesamenu.c32 with iPXE's menu is acceptable.  I'm
uncertain if it can provide a graphical user interface (GUI), as
opposed to a text-only user interface (TUI).

Yet another alternative is building/downloading ipxelinux.0.  If
building it, you could even use the precompiled pxelinux.0 binary.
This would allow for any module (including ldlinux.c32) to be
retrieved from an httpd.
