[PLUG] gnu parallel and tar

Hey guys,

I'm currently stuck at work on a friday evening at 6pm because of a tar/bz that is taking forever. It wouldn't be a problem if my computer was actually used properly for this task, but it is not. Out of 4 cores, only one is used.

I've been looking at gnu parallel [1] for quite a while and tonight situation tickle my "there must be a better way to do this" side. So, I'm consulting the GNUs : Do you guys know of a way to use multiple core in a tar -cjvf ?
