Compressed destination files

I searched the list and found some similar questions, but no answer, so...

I would like to do an incremental backup using rsync where all the files 
at the destination end are compressed (bz2). I'm backing up to a usb flash 
drive and would like to fit as much as possible on it. I would also like 
to avoid rsync'ing to another directory on my hard drive, and then 
bzip'ing that. Done this way only the modified files will need to be 
copied/bzipped, and if I want to restore a single file it is easy. Any 
ideas? Thanks.
