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!
