    Description

      So with xtrabackup you can:
      xtrabackup --backup --compress --compress-threads=N --target-dir=/path/to/backup
      why not:
      xtrabackup --prepare --compress --compress-threads=N --target-dir=...
      when a backup was created without compression or encryption.
       
      I haven't found an easy way to use xtrabackup's built-in compression after preparing a backup, if I missed something let me know. What I'm looking for is an easy way to have the host that's providing the backup also prepare and then compress the full backup into an xbstream archive. Then when we go to restore, its just downloading the archive, xbstream --extract ... and xtrabackup --decompress, and xtrabackup --copy-back ...
