 xz compression has around for several years and is being used to zip an
 increasing number of mainstream tarballs, including several common GNU
 utilities and, most recently, the linux kernel itself.  So I think it is
 now safe to say that xz is stable and it is time to add xz support to
 expatch.  That also makes expatch consistent with the rest of paludis,
 which already supports xz and has had that support for a while. The
 attached patch adds xz support to expatch.
