Thumbs up Multi-threaded (faster) SAMtools

I have been working on speeding up reading and writing within SAMtools by creating a multi-threaded block gzip reader and writer. I have an alpha version working. I would appreciate some feedback and testing, just don't use it for production systems yet. Thank-you!

NB: I would be happy describe the implementation, and collaborate to get this into Picard too.
