Bug#651364: gpsprune: add support for bzip2 and xz compressed file formats

Package: gpsprune
Version: 13.1-1
Severity: wishlist

gpsprune currently supports reading compressed GPX files, in the gzip(1)
compression format.

It would be nice to also support the other common compressed formats:
bzip2(1) & xz(1), especially as they both outperform gzip(1).

I should appreciate it if you would please consider this request.

best regards,
