Please consider adding support for the Bzip2 compression library.

The Bzip2 compression program and library has better compression ratios over the traditional zlib library. Bzip2 is stable and library and header files are included with the bzip2 distribution.  The functionality is almost he same as with gzip/zlib, so it seems that it wouldn't be to difficult to add.
