I just confirmed: It doesn't work.  I did, however, check in a modified
version that has the salutary effect of not segv'ing.  It seems to work
but, now that I think of it, I haven't downloaded any new packages with
.xz extensions.  It is general enough that, if it works for .tar.bz2, it
should also work for .tar.xz.

Thanks again for noticing this Yaakov.
