#7534: Iostreams filter for LZMA2 (XZ)
 Reporter: spixxi | Owner: turkanis

Milestone: To Be Determined | Component: iostreams

 I propose a standard LZMA2 (XZ) filter implementation for the Iostreams

 LZMA2 provides much better compression than gz and bzip2. XZ is the
 default package format in Slackware GNU/Linux. 7-Zip, the most popular
 file compressor for Windows also uses LZMA2.

 The source code of liblzma is found [http://tukaani.org/xz/ here].

 A sample implementation of a Boost Iostream filter for lzma can be found
 in the
 fusecompress source].

 I think it would be a big advantage because XZ is an upcoming file format
 which is used more and more in areas and by applications where saving
 bandwidth, memory or physical storage is important.
