Before the days of hybrid ISOs, unetbootin had it's usefulness.

To my knowledge today, Debian, openSUSE, and the *buntu ISOs are
hybrid i.e. you can simple dd=ISO_file to a pendrive or a hard disk
and it will boot!   No need for unetbootin.

Besides, I have found unetbootin works best with with *bunutu.  It
fails to create a bootable install disk from the CentOS.ISO images.

Take a look at how the SystemRescueCD does this with isolinux; i.e.
support multiple functionality through the boot menu.
