lbzip2: A multi-threaded bzip2/bunzip2 filter that isn't restricted to regular files1

Package available in: [trunk] [8.0]

Lbzip2 is a Pthreads-based parallel bzip2/bunzip2 (compressor/decompressor) filter, passable to GNU tar with the --use-compress-program option. It isn't restricted to regular files on input, nor output. Successful splitting for decompression isn't guaranteed, just very likely (failure is detected). Splitting for compression and compression itself occur with fixed 900k block size. Lbzip2 strives to be portable by requiring UNIX 98 APIs only, beside an unmodified libbz2.
