Hi Chris,

FYI, in the context of that patch, I noticed compression support (nice!),
and LZMA support in particular, but none for xz, which is the successor
to lzma.  <http://tukaani.org/xz/>

Now that XZ's format is stable, and xz is in F11, you may
want to support it, too.

Actually, since lzma is deprecated, and support for it in libvirt
went in only 3 weeks ago, you may want to remove it completely,
in favor of xz.

Jim
