is an interesting read why
xz is an unsafe data format for long-time archival (bit-flips are
particularly disastrous to recover from), and argues that lzip may be a
better compression format.  Meanwhile, the recently-released open-source
Zstd compression seems like it can outperform several other compression
formats;  Should we be revisiting
coreutils' xz-only distribution policy?
