what about multithreaded compression with tar? Is anything related to
this already planned?
You can easily achieve this using "--use-compress-program=plzip".
"Plzip is a massively parallel (multi-threaded), lossless data
compressor based on the LZMA algorithm, with very safe integrity
checking and a user interface similar to the one of gzip or bzip2".
