    But 7zip will *not* read the file, as far as I can tell.  

That is too bad.  I guess lzma-utils and 7-zip are not compatible.  So I
won't bother writing anything about 7-zip.

The general question of the lzma file format is not settled.  The actual
compression method is fine, but the surrounding headers, magic bytes,
etc., are a subject of ongoing discussion.  Hopefully it will be settled
by next year.
