Thanks.  Good point.  Here's an amended patch:

Subject: [PATCH] also allow use of XZ for Qemu image compression

* src/qemu_driver.c (enum qemud_save_formats) [QEMUD_SAVE_FORMAT_XZ]:
New member.
[QEMUD_SAVE_FORMAT_LZMA]: Mark as deprecated.
(qemudDomainSave, qemudDomainRestore): Handle the new member.
* src/qemu.conf: Mention xz, too.
