XZ allows database dumps to be compressed way better then gzip or bz2. Can support be added for XZ?

This is a great idea, I have a prototype working on my laptop. I'm currently out snowboarding but I will integrate it right when I'm back at home with some proper internet connection ;)

You can now choose 'xz' for your target compression.
For this to work you must have the 'xz' binary installed
and available in your path.

To install the xz compressor you can do something like:
  Debian: apt-get install xz-utils
  OSX:    brew install xz

I added support for zx compression, currently only available in dev-master.

You can use it with something like

<target ... compress="xz" />

For tar commands the J option is used for simple file compression the xz binary is executed directly.
