I tried to use python modules if we have them instead of calling some
binaries. I hope there will be the PyLZMA module in fedora soon, so we
can change the xz call in the future too.

I have the lzma code in my local branch, I was trying it before we went
to Tempe, so you don't need to bother with it.

But, does it require any changes in anaconda? Or can we push the patch
to the repo and start using lzma right away?
