CD or DVD .dmg or folder converted to true ISO-9660 filesystem

Better yet, just drag the image file to your OS X Desktop and use:

hdiutil makehybrid -o ~/Desktop/<outfile> ~/Desktop/<source>

Why? Because it's -hfs, -iso, -joliet and -udf (you want a DVD, right?) all wrapped into one. Not much bigger, either - this is from typing "man hdiutil" in the Terminal:

"By default, if no filesystem is specified, the image will be created with all four filesystems as a hybrid image. The data area of the image is shared between all filesystems, and only directory information and volume meta-data are unique to each filesystem. This means that creating a cross-platform ISO9660/HFS+ hybrid has a minimal overhead when compared to a single filesystem image."

And better yet, <source> can be a folder.
