pbzip2 creates differently structured bzip2 files than normal
bzip2 does. these files fail to decompress properly with the
gzip/unbzip2.c sources (and also the python BZ2File module.)
the problem is that pbzip2 creates multiple logical streams
in the output file, and when the decompression routine returns
BZ_STREAM_END not at the end of a file, and gzip/unbzip2.c is
not written to handle this case.
attempted to use gzip decompress a .bz2 created by pbzip2.
i'm not sure. my quick attempt to re-init the stream does
not work. filing this PR to keep track of the problem.
