> I think this support should be backported to Python 2.7 and 3.2.
I think our policy is pretty clear: the module docs did not say multiple streams were supported, so when support for them was added it was clearly a new feature.

> Current code can't decompress files generated by "pbzip2", fairly popular.
That is unfortunate, but I don’t think that the features of one tool, even popular, should make us break the policy.  That’s why I concur with Nadeem and think that a PyPI backport is the only way to provide multi-streams bz2 to previous versions.

Best regards
