Éric, bz2 module in Python is documented as able to manage bz2 files. But that is not true, since it is unable to manage popular bz2 files. That looks like a bug to me. In fact, you can create those files from python, files that python can not unpack later.
Moreover, Python 2.7 is going to live for a long time.
If the refusal of backporting this to 3.2 and 2.7 is firm, I would beg to document this limitation in the 2.7/3.2 docs. It is serious enough.
Please, reconsider backporting this to 2.7, at least.
