since 98.5 to be exact. If we do this, we need to reopen #675558 because
we no longer use external libmspack but the embedded code instead.

Maybe. I could finish it and to post it to bugzilla and maybe it gets in
prior the official release. It wouldn't matter much for experimental.
However if this does not happen we would have to decide what we do for
unstable and way it looks now, we drop LFS support and reopen #675558.

If you both agree I will reopen the bug and upload it to exp tomorrow
