Turns out to be BZIP2.

After creating an installer for my KidMem game that bundles the JRE, the full install archive was 47MB, with default (zip) compression. After switching to BZIP2 it went down to 42MB.

Considering that most of it is actually already compressed ZIP data (the JRE), it's an outstanding performance.
