Re: savelog with "immediate" compress

No. However, I think if you run the same savelog command trice in a row, you
will get the effect you want. file.0 will still be uncompressed, but the logs
will be in file.1.gz . And this really shouldn't take significantly longer 
than running savelog once.

Note, though:

       If a process is still writing to file.0, and savelog moves
       it to file.1 and compresses it, data could be lost.

So this is something you need to watch out for when running savelog twice in
a row.
