Hi folks,

On a whim I compared the sizes of torque-1.1.0p3 gzip'd and bzip2'd:

# zcat -v torque-1.1.0p3.tar.gz > torque.tar
torque-1.1.0p3.tar.gz:   82.7%
# bzip2 -v torque.tar
  torque.tar:  8.459:1,  0.946 bits/byte, 88.18% saved, 12421120 in, 1468327 out.
# ls -s torque*tar.*
2108 torque-1.1.0p3.tar.gz  1440 torque.tar.bz2

If you guys pay for outbound bandwidth then a 600KB saving per grab may be
worth it to you.. :-)

cheers!
Chris
