it seems to me that combining the hex is the moral equivalent of linking.
I try to merge a bootloader (optiboot) and sketch hex file into one hex file such that it can be uploaded in one step with my isp.
What would be the point of loading both the sketch and bootloader via ISP?

I can't speak for Udo Klein's application, but I'm interested in doing this to program blank chips in embedded circuits in one step. I need the bootloader because future firmware updates will be done by the user via USB.Chris
