Imho this could (should) be an experimental feature, turned on/off in
I have modified my packagers and now using pigz instead of gzip and
pxz instead of xz for a year without glitches and errors.
I think, both ways are simple and reliable, i prefer to change the tools
and leave pacman and makepkg untouched.
And it speeds up compressing and decompressing a lot on my AMD
