If the upstream offers tar.gz, tar.bz2 and tar.xz, use the tar.xz

I just had a package fail to package on several distros, include some old
suse distros, because it used xz.

? How so? On some you might need to BuildRequire: xz to get it unpack.

Some distros do not have anything to satisfy this requirement or it has been
renamed to something difficult to find.

When I switched it to bz2, it packaged on all distros!

I did not recompress anything, the upstream offered all three!
