Slackware 13's mc works fine with .txz packages.

I found it rather simple to upgrade everything on a 12.2 system using
the 13.0 Slackbuild scripts. pkgtools itself can be upgradepkg'ed
on older systems, but you also need xz.
Oh, now that I think of it, I recall that I just installpkg'ed the
slackware64 xz package on my slamd64-12.2 system. I didn't try that
with mc; right now I just ssh to a 13.0 host if I want to look inside
any txz/tlz packages. :)
