The proposed patch adds xz compression support in additional to gzip and bzip2 in Mac buil script.

Thanks for the patch but why are you proposing it?  First, there are no xz compressed downloads used in the OS X installer build. Second, OS X currently does not ship with xz library support or with an unxz command. We build libxz for use by Python in the installer job. I don't see a reason to add this.

Serhiy, I see that the context for this patch is that you have been providing xz patches for various parts of Python.  For the reasons I mentioned, this particular patch is not needed nor will it work as is on OS X.  So I am rejecting it for now.

For the record: I agree with Ned, the patch is not needed at this time and won't work as is anyway (in particular: tar on OSX does not have an 'J' option, so even if you install the lzma tools the patch won't work)

OK. I thought that xz support was just forgot. The xz compression was very popular in the Linux distributives over the past few years.
