Hi Guys

Ive decided to start work on implementing the bz2 module, unless
anyone else is working on it already. My plan is to use apache commons
compress. I will update the roadmap wiki when I get a chance.
Hi Julian,

I think someone has tried using Apache's compression code before and found that some parts of CPython's bz2 module are not implementable that way - on the other hand this was many years ago so maybe things are different now. It sounds like a good starting place in any case - let us know how it goes!

BTW apologies that I haven't made it back to test your test_csv patch yet, I think I should have a chance today.
