That made me wonder about config.h and the #defines. With a really
quick look I found


which sets a few #defines but it's quite limited, for example, a
comment tells that only 64-bit systems are supported. I also don't see
TUKLIB_FAST_UNALIGNED_ACCESS which is good on 32/64-bit x86 and some
ARMs to get a little better encoder performance. Also

    #define TUKLIB_SYMBOL_PREFIX lzma_

could be good to have to ensure that all symbols begin with "lzma_".

Of course these don't matter if the system liblzma is used instead. I
understood that it's an option too.

I can. Since there are other bindings to use liblzma, I wonder if some
of those should be listed too. What do you think? I have no Go
experience so I have no idea which are good or already popular.
