Compatible with all recent Macs?
Is this compatible with all recent Macs, or is it like earlier USB SuperDrives in that it is modded to only work with Macs that don't have an optical drive (MacBook Air, Mac mini Server, and now, the new MacBook Pro with Retina Display)?

Only Macs that do not have built in SuperDrives.

It only works with devices that don't have a SuperDrive.
Don't misunderstand, it's not "modded" to only work with those devices, those devices are the only ones with drivers capable of communicating with it. Devices with built in SuperDrives have no need for those drivers, so they aren't included.

It is like the previous USB SuperDrive, support only
Macs without built-in optical drive and
Macs not being able to optional built in an optical drive.

I'm sure it is just like the previous model in that it only works with computers lacking an optical drive.
