Parallel compression

Are there any multi-threaded compression algorithms, or at least wrappers/formats for interleaved compression, with variable interleave size?

It'd be nice to take advantage of multiple processors when gzipping 380 GB, while still doing sequential reads, even if the resultant file was non-standard.
