By default, mkisofs is called with some predefined arguments in 

   args = ["/usr/bin/mkisofs",
           "-J", "-r",
           "-hide-rr-moved", "-hide-joliet-trans-tbl",
           "-V", self.fslabel,
           "-o", iso]

Is there a reason why the -T option is not passed to mkisofs? From the 
mkisofs man page:
       -T     Generate a file TRANS.TBL in each directory on the CDROM, 
              can be used on non-Rock Ridge capable systems to help 
              the correct file names.  There is also information  
present  in
              the  file  that indicates the major and minor numbers for 
              and character devices, and each symlink has  the  name  
of  the
              link file given.

I encountered some systems where the use of this option was the only way 
to make the LiveCD boot.
