lzma instead of bzip2 for packages compression ?

The cygwin 'tar.bz2' packages are created once and broadcasted to many hosts.

The lzma compression is fast for decompression.  Could we possibly get the packages with lzma compression ?

We could set the right parameters in order to fit a maximum memory limit that would be required for decompression.
