I reviewed your patch which looks good. But before committing I want to have
some changes,

1) In the usage message we have
     -b compress the dump using bzip2.
                           compress the dump using bzip2 command

which is confusing. May be we can say 'compress the dump using python bzip2
     library' for the former and 'compress the dump using bzip2 custom command'
for the later?

2) Same thing applies for gzip command too.

3) May be we can detect usage of -b and --bzip2-path together and say they are
mutually exclusive? This is because, with the current patch if we give both,
only --bzip2-path works and -b is silently ignored, which may confuse users.

Thank You.
