Actually it's not right around the corner, at least not in the shape and 
completeness you'd want for it to be. This lzma support will be compatible 
with new lzma utils as well anyays..
I posted this patch just for compatibility purposes as we seem to be making 
the switch to lzma for payload, I don't plan on posting further patches for 
rpm.org. Better track rpm5.org on this one if interested in usable/stable 
lzma payload support in any near future.

g'nite :)
