      Description

      Hi Guys,

      I used log4j in the past, and its RollingFileAppender has the possibility to compress the rolled file. It would be a nice feature in log4net too, because it is much easier to handle the rolled files in compressed format. After a lot of searching I did not find a built-in solution in log4net for compression, I decided to implement it. I wanted to do it using the RollFile method, but I was not able to do it, because the RollFile method is not virtual this time. So the solution was for me: I copied the RollingFileAppender into a custom namespace, made its RollFile virtual, and wrote a subclass which had a customized RollFile method. At least a virtual RollFile method would be useful too.

      Thanks:
      Ferenc
