It was, but it just hit rawhide a few days ago.  I do have an update to
5.0.8 -- released upstream the very same day -- in the queue, but given
the new features, I'm planning on letting it get some more testing
first.  There's also the issue of assuring that setup*.exe can handle
parallel-compressed .tar.xz, as there was previously an issue with
pbzip2 parallel compression.

Note that this is NOT an invitation to contact maintainers privately.
