CD booting with BOOTMGR manager (Users)

I like and everyday use the boot manager BOOTMGR from BTTR-software.
It allows to boot from any hard disk partition and from diskette drive.
But it can't boot from CD.
I understand that adding such support could be difficult and size of the generated code maybe could break some size limit.

So I want to ask for alternative solution.
It would we sufficient to select for booting some very small disc partition with code which could chain the booting proces onto CD-ROM.

I know that GRUB4DOS can do such things but I am not sure if it will work not from MBR location but from partition location.
And besides that, GRUB4DOS is too complicated, maybe somebody knows some more light and straightforward solution?

I don't think grub4dos is complicated, I would say less than grub2.
But you can try PLOP - CD boot is on feature list besides generic USB support :)

I am not sure if I was understood correctly.
I want this boot chain

boot_start -> BOOTMGR manager
               DOS partition
               Windows partition
               micro partition ----> something (PLOP, GRUB?) -> authomatic forward into CD
