Sorry, then I missunderstood you. I heard that, it got lzma support,
finally, right? Well, you'll get three answers:

I'm using Stable, please provide packages for it!
I'm using Testing, please provide packages for it!
I'm using Unstable, please provide packages for it!

Well I guess most of us use Testing or Unstable, so this should fit the
most, backports for Stable aren't difficult, though. So I would say it
depends on how much time you want to spend.
