xdelta3 support would be nice, but frankly it would only be used in
corner cases. If I consider our example to be representative, this would
require significant hackery in our download scripts, with a very small
benefit since the generated tarball has to be uploaded to our FTP server
after the build, and most developers have ADSL lines, so upload time is
a more pregnant problem than download time. (And .xz support *will*
reduce upload time.)
