"rzip is not for everyone! The two biggest disadvantages are that you can't
pipeline rzip (so it can't read from standard input or write to standard
output), and that it uses lots of memory. A typical compression run on a large
file might use a couple of hundred MB of ram. If you have ram to burn and want
the best possible compression rate then rzip is probably for you, otherwise
stick with bzip2 or gzip."

I'm not sure whether not being able to pipeline it might be a problem, but
needing that huge amount of RAM might, at least in my oppinion. I'm not sure
if they're refering just to compression or both to compression and
decompression anyway.
