in the example you mentioned upstream have added xz to the set of
archives they distribute their source in. Currently the GNU Octave
source code is being distributed as .gz, lz and .xz tarballs.
I don't get it; what exactly is the problem when upstream distributes
their source in multiple formats, including .xz and .lz, among others?
