If a compression format other than gzip is used we might
as well move to xz instead of bzip2.

11.0M qemu-1.1.1-1.tar.gz
9.2M  qemu-1.1.1-1.tar.bz2
7.3M  qemu-1.1.1-1.tar.xz

xz support was introduced in tar only in 2009.  We only expose one
source tarball and I don't think relying on something so new is a good
idea.
