"git archive" emits an uncompressed tarball to stdout, so that I can simply say

    git archive --tag foo | xz >../foo.tar.xz

To use xz or bzip2 instead of gzip with "darcs dist", I have to dance:

    darcs dist --tag foo
    guzip ../foo.tar.gz
    xz ../foo.tar

Is there a better way to do this?  Maybe dist needs an overhaul anyway.
