I'm pretty sure that version is too old.

No; it's still there.  You can build it using

   make bin-x86_64-efi/snponly.efi

I've just pushed some changes which should fix some reported issues with 
snponly; please use the current iPXE master branch.

Yes, that scenario will work, but you do need to use an up-to-date iPXE 
binary.
