For now, and forever.

We're doubly sure. Our decision is to abandon and eradicate lzma.

I'll change that (and of course fix the directory-copying issue),
test everything, and commit to HEAD, but it'll take something like
six hours because I have something even more urgent to take care
of first. I'll let you know when I've finished all of that, and I
hope that at that time you'll be able to retest everything in
'INSTALL', along with
in cygwin so we'll know cygwin is fully supported. Until then, I
just wanted to let you know we're abandoning liblzma and there's
no need for you to try to make it work with libxml2 in cygwin.
