Well I'm not the bz2 maintainer but I could take a look. The BZ2File implementation is generally a straight ripoff of the 2.x file object, with (de)compression calls added where necessary. I guess the ripoff was a one-shot effort and subsequent maintenance wasn't done.

It makes it quite a bit alien in the 3.x IO landscape, but until someone decides to rewrite it we'll have to live with that.
