I consider the lzma code in the repository to belong to all of us, not
only me. That's why I said "we".
Current decompression code and makefiles in the v2 codebase use the
lzma sdk. If you move the makefiles to p7zip, you have to rewrite the
decompression code. That is feasible (you can even make the
decompression code handle both archive formats), but will need some
time to make sure nothing breaks. The main difference between the
sdk and p7zip is in the header format, and there it is just the
absence of one header field in p7zip, so heuristics for format
recognition should work.
