[logback-user] FileAppender gzip

The file appender only offers compression support when the log files are 
rotated.  I think you'll have to extend the appender if you want to 
compress while you write.  However, this could be dangerous as the 
appender may be closed out unexpectedly (e.g. if the VM is killed or 
stopped) which would could leave you with a corrupted archive.
