There seems to be support for compress only when sending out batches with
sendbatch. I added support using gzip (options -g/+g). Maybe one should
think about using bzip2, too. But this is far from being standard.

Relevant part in sendbatch is:

        COMP="; exec ${GZIP} ${GZIPFLAGS}"
        ECHO="echo '#! cunbatch'"
        COMP="; exec ${GZIP} ${GZIPFLAGS}"
        ECHO="echo '#! gunbatch'"

where GZIPFLAGS contains a '-9f'.
By the way: COMPFLAGS should be set to '-f' by default!

Comments welcome.
