With a few other (non-gnome) tarballs switching to xz-only, one thing I
realized is that python doesn't support that yet:
It means that, for my downstream activities, I'll have to update some
scripts to work around this missing feature in python.
It's not a blocker for the switch (at least for me), but that might be
something others need to consider.
Note that there's been some recent activity in the python bug, so maybe
that won't be an issue at all.
Les gens heureux ne sont pas pressés.
