µdebs won't use the xz default, though.  (The compression for them will be
handled in debhelper.)

With the compression scheme I posted to -boot it doesn't need more memory than
gzip while still compressing better.  I don't see any trouble in activating
xz for amd64/i386 immediately before the release, if the problem with the core
packages is solved.  (I.e. debootstrap avoiding any ties to xz or avoiding the
compression of core packages.)

Kind regards
