Thank you. However this is basically the same as if I parse
A slight drawback might be that it is not 100% reliable to parse
texlive.tlpdb (it is updated later than the package, so I need to be
careful that I don't try to fetch files with file list from a
different revision), but I will try to make sure that I only check
revisions right after texlive.tlpdb update.

How are tar.xz archives generated? Do you simply feed the compression
program with a list of files to be compressed?
Anyway, it is no problem to write a perl/ruby/whatever script from
scratch to do this.
