Assuming you meant ' "y" instead of "j" '  Which version?  Old habits die
hard, and they die even harder when you have access to change the source.
I've patched both 1.13 and 1.13.25....simply change the -y line to
call --bzip2 (add one line if you want to update the help function), add y
to the avail options line, and copy the case statement for j, place it
before z and change the case value to y for 1.13.25.  Hit me back if you'd
like copies of the patches.
