Bonjour mes amis!

I just uploaded pkg-kde-tools 0.9.2ubuntu12 which brings a very nice change 
regarding LZMA.

Previously LZMA was hardcoded into the KDE build modules which created the 
need to manually implement LZMA compression for packages that do not use the 
KDE build thingies directly. Not anymore! (well if the package is using dh7 

If pkg-kde-tools is listed as a build-dep you can just use

  dh $@ --with lzma

in your rules.

Should you come across a manual override of builddeb for LZMA, please upgrade 
to the above version since it allows for greater flexibility in the future an 
of course gives you the regular apachelogger-awesomeness of being able to use 
DEB_NO_LZMA and DEB_NO_COMPRESSION to speed up your local test builds.

Come to think of it, what you should not do is combine "--with lzma" with "--
with kde". Since latter implies the former already I am afraid that would 
break in some undefined way.
