Do you know lzip (http://www.nongnu.org/lzip/lzip.html)?

Lzip package size is only 55156 bytes, it is stable (xz is beta), some people consider it better designed than xz (http://lpar.ath0.com/2009/09/25/documentation-as-an-indicator-of-code-quality/) and may very well be the LZMA file format that succeeds.
