Newer glibc needs a newer kernel quite often, so you end up having half
of core as non-xz (a rule which has already been violated right now).

Even the 2009.08 image should have xz support already (with a bug that
fails to extract xz -9 packages but not xz -6 packages), so we should be
okay, mostly.
