As it turned out, we *did* make it configurable by passing an
alternate value to PKGTYPE when invoking the script, and that's
still the case.

That's actually *more* work than the present situation - there's
no need to edit any scripts even *now* if you want to make txz
And could be better to define $PKGTYPE

There's no need to define it anywhere -- see above.
Anyway, since there seems to be some desire for a definitive
statement on this, I'm going to make one:
There are no plans to change the default package compression at
any point in the near future. The reasons include, but are not
necessarily limited to, the following:
1. We like it that way. :-)
2. It works fine as is.
3. It minimizes the time required to build a package.
4. It's easy to customize if the admin prefers something else.
5. There's no compelling reason to change it.
6. We like it that way. :-)
