That's a nice idea, but I don't think we should create dummy packages
"just in case". It would be cleaner to add it to the requirements
and provide the "./configure && make" instructions only for those
systems which don't provide an Xz package.

However, I'll come back to your idea when a real need for xz/lzma
arises. Then we'll know for sure whether Xz still a niche or whether
most distributions provide proper packages for it. At the moment it's
simply too early to make a decision about it. Xz is neither required
not widespread enough.
