The live spins use squashfs which currently doesn't use lzma compression.
There is a good chance that Phillip Lougher will be submitting a patch
in the 2.6.33 merge window for the upstream kernel to do this. We'll
know in a couple of weeks. If this happens then I think there is a reasonable
shot that F13 will use lzma for the live spins.
