comment How to recompress 2 million gzip files without storing them twice?
Any compression program would do. If I can create a tar file of the decompressed-but-not-stored files, I can pipe it to any other program.

@CristianCiupitu: I measured without |gzip and the uncompressed file didn't basically touch the HDD, so IMHO it shouldn't be THAT slow.

comment Redirect stderr to a file, but create only if any stderr happened?
I'd expect it to be more complex in the working case since you'd have to be looking at a particular temporary file and as I said, I'd rather prevent empty stderr files from being created at all.

I'd prefer to monitor logs on the fly and empty files make it less convenient.
