http://sources.redhat.com/bzip2/index.html is gradually gaining wider
acceptance and distribution. I'd say it's where gzip was in 1993-94. It's a
little more CPU intensive but is also consistently better than gzip.

Coincidentally with the recent discussions on xml-dev, I see the author is a
functional programming fan :)
