Hmm, that _is_ better.  The previous version was starting to sound
like “noun noun noun noun noun”.

To make it sound more descriptive and less like a brand, maybe it
would be good to bring back the hyphen.  That is, how about returning
to this?

	Description: XZ-format compression library

It’s true that the library can read and write LZMA files as well, but
the long description conveys that already.
