No, perhaps the short description is misleading. pbzip2 works by
splitting up a file into chunks and then encoding each chunk with a
separate thread(via libbz2), so it is perhaps more described as a
parallel frontend to libbz2. This also means that the encoding is
slightly less efficient(the author claims it usually produces a .bz2
that is <= 0.2% larger than standard).
