In other words, a sufficiently parallelized system
may have to wait just for that one to complete.

Interesting, apart from the main kicad package which is a binary/python mix
other packages are all noarch text of which kicad-packages3D is enormous in
size. My assumption from this would be the need for a different compressor for
noarch packages.

noarch does not mean anything with regard to compression, just that it
does not (better: is believed to not have) any arch-specific content.
