Lzip offers the advantage of simplicity. This is why lzip reached stable status in much less time than lzma-utils or xz-utils. This is also why there are already two independent implementations[2] supporting the lzip format whereas only xz-utils supports the xz format.

Is lzip expected to be portable? Did you receive the email (and patch) that I sent to you a day ago regarding a portability issue?

What operating systems and compilers has Lzip been demonstrated to work with?

Note that 'xz' caused compilation problems for me as well so apparently it is not properly portable. Normally I expect open source software to build with GCC but such was not the case for me with 'xz'.
