Yes.  It is possible something like varnish in front of the https server
would cache the tar files so that multiple requests can run from ram.

Also, it should be possible to configure cgit to use -0, -1 or -2 when
invoking xz.

Or you might be able to disable xz and have such requests redirect to an
error page suggesting a tar.gz instead.

I know fdo uses varnish.  I wouldn't be surprized if it was for this
exact reason.
