OpenSUSE don't support this feature yet?

There is no information on this at all. The only thing I found was:
http://lizards.opensuse.org/2009/04/28/whats-behind-lzma-compressed-livecds/

Other than that, there is no news on it at all.

http://lizards.opensuse.org/2009/05/15/livecd-performance-clicfs-vs-squashfs/ also mentions clicfs (which we use for our LiveCDs) using LZMA - so we have this feature done for years now.

You are right, I didn't know about clicfs and I went and found this.

That git source link at the bottom of the article does not work though.

Well that was comparing iso+lzma to squashfs+gzip. A better-suited comparison using squashfs+xz (kernel 3.0 has a CONFIG_SQUASHFS_XZ) should be done.
