Would be nice to be able to make tar.xz release tarballs to save space and bandwidth:

rw-r--r- 1 mones mones 3472762 Mar 26 09:14 sylpheed-3.4.0.tar.bz2
rw-r--r- 1 mones mones 2619912 Mar 31 07:58 sylpheed-3.4.0.tar.xz

(that's around 25% smaller for 3.4).

I think the attached (untested) patch can implement this feature.

https://wiki.debian.org/Projects/DebSrc3.0 notes that xz is also listed as first class archive format.

It may be happy with debian repository archive (point of repository disk usage) if .xz archive is also provided officially.
