Hi,
I've packed some jpeg files with pbzip2, which produces multi-stream bzip2 files (according to the author), trying to test Comix's read-from-archive ability.
And Comix couldn't read the archive properly that's been produces with pbzip2.

multi-stream bzip2 files are in the standard bzip2 specification, as they are decompressed properly by "tar xvf".
please add (or fix?) this feature to the software.

    Hi,

    thanks for the report. Comix uses the bzip2-reading capabilities of Python. Python unfortunately does not support multi-stream bzip2 files at the moment, but there is a patch for it so it might get fixed some time soon (http://bugs.python.org/issue1625). When Python gets those capabilities, Comix should also start supporting such files.
