Hi, Colin. I'm familiar with the processor directive and am already
using it to compress the logs at rotation. I suppose I could write a
processor that would handle writing the logs to disk, but I was hoping
to continue to rely on svlogd, which I trust more than myself. May
still be worth looking in to, though.

Thanks for the suggestion.
