Compressor with Burrows–Wheeler transform and PPM context modeling

A compressor featuring improved compression ratios and performance over bzip2 thanks to a order-0 context mixing entropy coder, a Burrows-Wheeler transform code making use of suffix arrays, a RLE with Lempel Ziv+Prediction pass based on LZ77-style string matching and PPM-style context modeling. bzip3 1.3.0 can outperform zstd 1.5.5 on specific data sets, e.g. 15% better ratio for same compress time on source code, but has time trouble with e.g. object files.
