 On The 'xz' Fiasco

PSA: Ubuntu 22.04 (desktop) is running an older version (5.2.5) of xz so it should be unaffected. Why on earth would a compression utility need a binary blob? Is there some proprietary compression algorithm out there? I thought we hit peak compression around the ARJ/bz2 days in the 90s. Even then it seems like each 'new' compression is just a tiny bit better than plain gz or pkzip.
