      Description

      The mariabackup option --compress was compatible with incremental backups. However it is deprecated, users should use streaming to 3rd-party tools. Such a compressed backup cannot be used as base-directory for an incremental backup.

      Feature request: Incorporate compression tools like gzip / 7zip into mariabackup and remove "deprecated" marker, to make incremental backups compatible with compression again.
