[OpenWrt-Devel] Request for including xz-utils in the packages

I've been navigating through the package list and I did not 
find xz-utils in the packages section.

Since xz archives are gaining popularity, it would be better 
to package xz-utils and xz-embedded for Openwrt. They should be 
available under menuconfig on Utilities/Compression.

Busybox has xz configuration, but it just decompress since it 
is based on xz-embedded.

Please consider packaging xz-utils for Openwrt.
