  Okay, I suggest the following patch removing the 2 extra compressors
and making sure the package including the daemon, if compiled with qemu
has the proper dependancies.
  xz package dependancy is IMHO a small price to pay: Size: 443012
to garantee reliability and bzip2 and gzip are so standard that it
should not be a problem for anybody to list them explicitely.
