Just a reminder, there's still a bug in libarchive that prevents xz/lzma 
from being supported properly (archives compressed manually with xz -9 
fail to decompress). This bug is fixed, but no new libarchive has been 
released since then. Everybody said fixing it isn't worth it, as a new 
libarchive would be released "soon".
