Re: The archive now supports xz compression

|   Does someone have an estimate how many core-hours would an archive rebuild

|   very fast box", "more like 1500" -- too divergent for my liking.  The
|   first number, 340, would mean switching to xz exclusively would increase
|   average build time by ~5%.

About 14 on a 2x6-core Intel Xeon X5650 (2.67GHz) (with HT), lots of
memory, fast disks.
