The format seems a little too new and you seem to derail the discussion
in a mailing list unrelated to the main project (exherbo).

Would you please stop flaming?

xz took a lot of time to supplant bzip2 mainly because to make it viable
you would need to provide alternatives.

You might suggest to look at the format and help spreading the mindshare
or act like a bully and make people consider the whole thing bad
marketing and start ignoring you and your proposals like it is spam.
