PMS doesn't mention lzma-compressed tar files, but Portage (and also
Paludis, as far as I can see) can unpack them.

And I think calling simple *.lzma and *.xz files "archives" is
misleading. They are just single compressed files like *.gz or *.bz2.
Patch is attached.

We could also think about reordering the list of extensions. Currently
it's not very systematic.
