It's completely compatible. Just the compressed bytestream is not identical - so the generated ISO should work 100% but the MD5SUM is different.
This is only a problem if you rely on the compressed output being identical on two different systems - a use case i only encountered with deltas of compressed files (dtu's in gentoo and deltarpms for suse).
