NB: I would be happy describe the implementation, and collaborate to get this into Picard too.
So are you saying you made a parallelized version of BZIP2? We have also been playing around with this. We parallelized the compression and decompression steps in the read/write functions of samtools for a local realignment tool we built.

I would love to learn more about what you are doing as I would hate to duplicate anything you are going to already do!
