I'm not sure how useful it would be to suggest enhancements, but here's 

rdiff-backup uses gzip for compression. With modern multi-core 
processors, that's not efficient. I'd like to suggest an option to use 
other compression programs, for example bzip2 or xz, or even multi-
threaded compressions programs, such as pbzip2 or pxz.

As I understand it, pigz ( https://zlib.net/pigz/ ) is fully backward-
compatible with gzip, so perhaps that would be the easiest solution.
