It's only 'uncertain' in the sense that it's not committed to always
producing the same archive in future versions or on different
architectures. As has been pointed out, this only has any relevance when
it comes to delta RPMs, which are hardly a vital case (it's not
catastrophic if they don't work). There's no suggestion that the tool is
'uncertain' in any more important sense (i.e. it doesn't actually
compress / decompress properly). It isn't.
