Why do you have absolute path names?
J?rg.. what's the short-cut way to have star compress "." and pipe it
through xz so it's an apple vs apple comparison on the compression being
used.

Also does star have some functionality like..

xar -cf filepath --compression=xz -n package_meta.xml -s foo.xml
xar --dump-toc=foo.xml -f /usr/portage/packages/app-editors/vim-7.2.021.oxe
See the star man page......

star has -compress-program=abc
What compression is lzma2 and which program supports it?
http://tukaani.org/lzma/header-format-23.txt

xz (lzma2) is beta work from Lasse Collin & Igor Pavlov.
I cannot find "xz", but I find a program "lzma" which seems to use 7z
compression (I already mentioned this one). A problem is: I cannot see
any useful magic number at the beginning of the compressed file.

J?rg
