Interesting!

I guess it makes the whole operation a bit safer and easier for people who might not know what they are doing.

But other than that, it seems a bit overkill to me, I've always used dd directly:
Code:
dd -if=/path/to/somedistro.iso -of=/dev/sdx -bs=1M
Where /path/to/somedistro.iso is the path to the iso and /dev/sdx is the path to the usb drive.

That method has never failed me!

And it's perfectly safe - at least, as long as you ensure that you are using the correct path to the USB drive and that it is unmounted etc.
