I'm curious if it's possible to decompress a 10.1 tile package (.tpk) into a different format such as the cache bundle format.

Tile packages are just normal zip files which contain the images in a "bundle" format along with metadata in more familiar formats.

The bundle format is proprietary and undocumented. Some details including initial code sample are available on the ArcGIS forums.
