That should work just fine.

Because the algorithm is slightly different, results may vary a bit,
but for 99% of the cases, they will be identical.  Of course, if you're
relying on $FOO environment variable substitution, you'd have to roll
your own replacement, because the egg (currently) does not do that at
all.  If enough people demand this, it could be added to the egg as an
optional feature.
