Default Fwd: Nightly composes using XZ spins

Hi

Might consider including LibreOffice or parts of it in the Live CD if
feasible

The nightly composes switched over to using XZ today. I am not sure if
something else changed in rawhide last night, but the kde and desktop
spins each dropped about 130 MB which is a lot better than I expected
(which was mostly based on the effect I had seen on the games spin
in tests).

If you see any problems that look like they might be related using XZ for
the spins please file a bug against livecd-tools.

FWIW on this, a quick boot test on the latest nightly looks to work
fine, and I had a look at the 01/22 and 01/23 logs, they have the same
number of packages and there's no obvious huge breakage...so it looks
like we really did just gain 130MB of space for free, yay!

I did local local builds comparing the same set of packages for the
Desktop and saw the same size change as confirming that the space
was from using xz.

Presviously I had been doing my tests with sample games spins and while
the savings were better in absolute terms, it was significantly less
in relative terms.

I'm pretty sure that 130M is not enough to fit libreoffice,
unfortunately

Remember that libreoffice will be compressed on the live image, so it will
not take up as much space as on a normal install.

I guess we'll have to try it and look at the actual numbers.

I suggest rather than discussing theoreticals, we wait for someone to give
it a try. All the tools are out there.
