The reaction to an
append request may be one of the following:
This works with gzip, and might not work with other (un)compressors! This relies on gzip's feature to consider a concatenation of compressed files as a compression of concatenated files.
This is only reliable if you can guarantee that the file is not accessed
by some other program while the first one has it still open, or that it
won't be opened again (even by the same program) shortly after it has
been closed. Delays longer than a second should be ok. Don't enable
append-compressed if you expect the file to be written to by
several programs at once.
