As much as this isn't the "ideal" outcome, I fully support this (assuming that this also would include the FHDB-hacked ROM OSD). I'm using the OSD as my hub for homebrew, with uLE only used to load apps from USB that I don't deem important enough to stick on the scrolling menu, and OPL for my gaming hub (in fact, I'm currently building a PS1-only 80GB HDD using POPStarter launched from OPL apps menu and FHDB with ROM OSD). It would be very nice to be able to launch HDLGameInstaller from the OSD without needing a USB stick, and I couldn't care less about launching it from uLE as long as I can get to it from the OSD.

I know this would mean that uLE would need to load the HDD modules always at the beginning in order to be able to find its configuration file on HDD, but I'm fine with that as a separate HDD build or something, since it would always be launched from the hacked OSD and thus the HDD will already be powered up and spinning.
