Interesting. You may want ot take this to the pacman-dev ML. A good
"real-world" look might be grabbing the openoffice package and
uncompressing it to a folder, and then run the following tests:

bsdtar czf package (gzip)
bsdtar cjf package (bzip2)
<lzma creation of package>

and then the similar unzip costs, along with the size of the original
folder structure (unzipped package) vs. their zipped counterparts.
