Do we have an idea how much more memory xz needs for decompression?  I guess
it wouldn't be feasible to switch dpkg's default on package builds on those
architectures where we assume some more beefyness?

I'd imagine that our CD1s would also get more useful if we'd compress those
in any case.  But then that probably also concerns our core packages where
memory usage might matter.
