Subjectbzip2 for kernel dists?

Has anyone thought of using bzip2 to compress the newer kernels instead of
gzip on & co? Even though I hate the name (come on, do I
really want to type that stupid 2?), it yeilds better compression than
gzip. It's being used in a few projects, egcs & glibc are the only ones I
can think of.

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 7822957 Dec 10 12:44 linux-2.1.72.tar.bz2

Maybe put both bz2 & gzip on so people who have bzip2 can uncompress it all?

Just a thought..
