devtools and db scripts should accept whatever resides in staging IMO,
regardless of the compression. So if Andy (for example) wants smaller
OOo packages, he simply sets makepkg to use .xz, uploads it and devtools
adds the .xz package (not caring that the rest of the repo is gz, I
think repo-add should have no problem with that). This way any developer
could choose if (de)compression time or size is more important and we
would have a very smooth transition (if we were to completely switch to gz).
