I've compiled busybox with bunzip2 enabled to check how much it would
increase the size of the binary.

otavio@neumann:~$ ls -l busybox-with-bunzip2/bin/busybox
-rwxr-xr-x 1 otavio otavio 263696 2008-01-02 13:01 busybox-with-bunzip2/bin/busybox
otavio@neumann:~$ ls -l busybox-without-bunzip2/bin/busybox
-rwxr-xr-x 1 otavio otavio 259856 2007-07-03 12:50 busybox-without-bunzip2/bin/busybox

So it increases 3840 bytes. To me, it looks worth the space change and
I think we could accept this. What others think?
