I would.  If you're on a platform without the latest GNU tools then BZ2 is
alien and unusable.  Why can't these formats be automatically generated?
Fred will have to be more clear as to what exactly is complicated about

just look at the download metrics from your server for the respective
formats. That would be interesting.
