I would like to see a loopback.cfg file on each ISO produced by archiso.
A loopback.cfg is basically just a grub.cfg that's designed to be used to boot a live distribution from an iso file on a filesystem rather than an actual physical CD.
This is a standard that has been adopted by several distributions by now.

Here are examples of loopback.cfg … opback.cfg
And the config to run it
This task depends upon
