Hi Tadeus (I think you know me :))

If the files .bz2 that you want to modify have something unique (like a
path prefix) you might also add an entry to auto-mode-alist with a
matching regexp.

For example
"bugs.*.bz2$" . fundamental-mode

In this way you get automatically the desired behaviour locally.
If they're all in the same directory you might even use some
dir-local-variable.

Hope it helps!
