Just for the record: I did a test in a VM and the result was that we don't
need to worry about it.
64MB are more than enough to decompress or even compress the openoffice
package (also tested install with pacman)
Even with 32MB there are no problems. But if you want to compress with such
low RAM you have to tell xz to use more than 40% of RAM (which is the default
maximum it will consume).
