I presume this is so that users can extract stages using pbzip2 in parallel? Since pbzip2 can only parallel-extract bzip2 archives made with pbzip2? What's wrong with using lbzip2 instead of pbzip2? It can parallel decompress (and compress) *all* bzip2 archives, not just those made with pbzip2/lbzip2. -- ~Nirbheek Chauhan Gentoo GNOME+Mozilla Team
