    Seems the consensus from that thread is that they don't want that, as the space advantages of xz helps mirrors and BW.
    I think the key comment was:

    > Ubuntu already did it years ago‚Äč

    I'm not convinced by any counter arguments in that thread. Sounds more like the usual Debian inertia to me.

        1.3x less disk space used (548MB vs 742MB)
        How do you get 130% less disk space used? Isn't it like 26% less? Even if you were doing 742/548 (but why would you?), that would still only be about 35%.
        Is math that hard?
