xz's "extreme" compression option only changes the compressor, the
decompressor doesn't even know which level of compression the compressor
used. Using extreme compression speeds up decompression because the cpu
usage is roughly linear with compressed size.

Using extreme compression uses more rigerous compression without raising
the size of the dictionary as using -7, -8, or -8 (64MB)--see xz(1) for
more info.
