Hanewin DHCP-Server is not free. It is shareware, after 30 days you have to pay for it.

|Even has instructions (written for gPXE, but meh)

The instructions do not cover gPXE or iPXE - only etherboot. 
Instructions do not cover how to configure userclass to break the infinite boot chain resulting from chainloading iPXE /gPXE

The advantage of ipxelinux.0 iş, that it already contains pxelinux.0 and this way can directly continue to boot the kernel. It can be used in mixed environments, where gPXE-clients and pure-PXE-clients live side by side.
No DHCP-userclass-dependant decision to either load gPXE/iPXE (for pure-PXE-clients) or pxelinux.0 (for gPXE/iPXE /clients) have to be done this way.

I hopę that ipxelinux.0 gets soon included in the syslinux package .
