Calm down, Pav. Then -- visit archivers/lzma to read more on this archiver. 
Then -- open one of the MASTER_SITES and examine the difference in size 
between .tar.bz2 and .tar.lzma:


The reduction (30%) in traffic for hundreds of mirrors, combined with the 
reduced space-use on millions of /usr/ports/distfiles and CD-ROMS is 
certainly worth it...

I wish, more vendors were aware of this new archiver...

I'll take that under advisement. Am I to assume, you have no /other/ issues 
with the patch? Thanks!
