A problem I see here is that LZMA is licensed under GPLv2-only, so it'd
probably take a rewrite of the decompressor for us to use it, or ask the
author to make it "or later".

By the looks (no explicit license header in individual files) I doubt it
was an explicit decision to exclude GPLv3.  I'll try contact him.
