Option to compress/decompress as .tar.xz in-app

Currently zip is the only compression format available, which is quite bloated. Adding algorithms that compress to .tar.xz in ultra mode, by building in a tar.xz compression/decompression system to the export function, would save a bunch of space especially for modpack developers who use nearly all 200MB upload you give us. The more content a modpack creator can provide, the better. So squeezing out 30 or so more MegaBytes of space is worth the time developing such an option.

Would be best implemented by saying "select a compression method; zip or tar.xz"
