I get the idea but adapt them using a different scheme:

* First and most important using mount hooks handler so main archiso 
hook is not touched at all.
* Make to work with copytoram option.
* Make to work with by-label
* Use a img_dev= and img_loop parameters instead of strange 
"fromiso=/dev/sdNM/the_img.iso". This also allows to place in any directory.

See here [#1] for the RFC patch
