I don't know that much about compression, but I wonder if a threadsafe compression module would enable parallel forms of compression?  If yes, then multithreaded might be a big benefit, in light of multicore taking off.

EG: http://www.compression.ca/pbzip2/

It might be worthwhile to check with the authors (of bzip2 and pyliblzma modules) about why they went with thread safety.
