--- Comment #1 from Frank Ch. Eigler <fche at redhat dot com> ---
Interesting idea.  OTOH, rpm2cpio and dpkg binaries are not too hard to come

One can experiment with the former already with git-master debuginfod with the
"-Z .rpm" option instead of "-R".  Performance seems to be roughly the same.

The latter is less compelling in that it'd require hard-coding the inner
data.tar.xz name and its processing ... meh.

Maybe the status quo is good enough?
