> This not-so-bad patch adds lzma compression support to the shutil functions, under the 'xztar' name.  Please review.

Functionally, the patch looks good to me. There are some docstrings that
should probably be updated, though:

- _make_tarball (the 'compress' argument)
- make_archive
- _unpack_tarfile
- unpack_archive

> Ideally, tarfile should have an attribute to expose what compression formats are available, then shutil would reuse that, and packaging would just call shutil.
