      Description

      As part of the project to change our default compressor from snappy to zstd, we introduced a Python test to our test suite which compresses a table using zstd and re-configures its compression level after restart. However, we could not run this along with the rest of the test suite without causing major Evergreen testing fallout as the zstd compressor was not available on PPC and ZSeries machines.

      As a temporary fix, in WT-7542 we added a --zstd option so that zstd tests will only be run on machines that do have the zstd compressor. We now want to remove this command option so that the Python test test_compress02.py is integrated with the rest of the unit_test.
