bzip2 is a pig.

hey bzip2 work fine for me on my 68040/25MHz, at least for unpacking, packing could be a bit slower but that is only for package maintainer and i guess we people use 386 for packaging lets say X or glibc :)

2) 2) This is only a temporary solution.

yes, but it would also disminish the package download time, would be nice to have packages diffs (binary diffs ).
