    Unless you can give me a really good reason as to why xz and arc compression is necessary, I won't include it in the program. Gzip and Bzip2 are the most common compressions and should suffice.

    For several years now xz is a standard compression tool delivered as core utility at every major linux distribution. The compression ratio is about 10%-50% better than bzip2. That's why I prefer xz very often.
