Comment (by irishespresso):

 And how does adding xz support to src_prepare, where 99% of patch files
 are uncompressed, represent a long-term commitment when src_unpack, where
 tarballs compressed with xz are becoming extremely common, has supported
 xz for years.  In my humble opinion, this patch merely makes src_prepare
 consistent with src_unpack rather than representing a new long-term
 commitment to xz.

 That said it's your call.  If you a development branch for a version of
 paludis with a targeted release date of a year or more from now, that may
 be the best place to put this since by 2013 I think all remaining doubts
 about the stability of xz will have been resolved.
