Comment(by ag@…):

 That's why I said there is no real urgency. xz will be a common format (in
 the near future) for package distribution. If there is time, it can go
 into 6.5, otherwise it can be moved to future,
 as no matter the delay, xz will go eventually into the Book. If William is
 willing to provide the patch, I don't see a real reason to avoid applying
 it and to have it side by side with LZMA-utils.

 As for the precedence, we already have such cases. zsh, mutt, mplayer,
 tidy to name a few. Anyway, I am not to go to Troy to make a war for this,
 thus I leave it for you as you always have the final
 word on anything, and I respect that.
