      Description

      It would be great to be able to choose between either faster or more compressible algorithms. The gzip option is excellent, but uses a significant amount of CPU, making backups take considerably longer.

      Consider allowing snappy compression (like used in wiredTiger) and/or bzip2.

      Additionally consider allowing the user to set the gzip or bzip2 level (1-9), as you would when manually compressing.
