 > I don't even have a problem with using the xz format of a package when a
 new version is incorporated in the book, but I am not in favor of revising
 the book for current package versions just to reduce the download size by

 Agreed, and that's the approach I've been taking.  If a package is
 upgraded in the book, I've checked for and used the .xz version if
 available.  Marking as WONTFIX due to there not being a WILLFIXGRADUALLY
 status :)
