I don't have a strong opinion about it and understand the desire to
standardize on one archive type.
I use the xz src tarballs myself, but how about continuing to do bz2
tarballs of the src tarballs only? (they are about the same size as
the xz tarballs anyway)
(A lot of small projects even still use tgz... :)
