I was just considering building a statically linked xz under sarge or
something even older, but I think, in addition to the trouble _that_
would be, transferring it there poses another problem, so the next
upload will be a .tgz then.

There's no cowbuilder variant, it uses buildd. The variants
available are:
• minbase
• buildd (= minbase + build-essential)
• - (= minbase + prio:important)

The prio:important packages aren’t in my repo. I plan on making
a .tgz of these, too (right with the new Aranym/Quick image).
