Yes.  This increases the chances that an external tarball source can be
decompressed, for example a source that has been packaged using the
(default) GNU tar format and compressed with lzip.  Note: this does not
affect the (binary) packages produced by Qi that are based on the POSIX
format (thanks to tarlz).

For when the next version?.  ;-)
