It seems that you agree that the basic mechanism is good enough to build on, so I'd rather leave the proposed stdlib change as is, but provide examples of how to achieve gzip/zip compression for rotated logs in the Logging Cookbook. The reason I don't want to add these in the stdlib is that I have to support anything I add indefinitely, so I don't want to add anything which will not be often used. This is the first time the issue has come up in all the years since the rotating file handlers have been around, so while I want to support your use case, I want to minimise stdlib changes and additions as much as I can.
