LP #1376874: --apply-log and --decompress aren't marked as mutually exclusive in the documentation

      Description

      **Reported in Launchpad by Fernando Ipar last update 08-10-2014 16:15:33

      The innobackupex option reference (http://www.percona.com/doc/percona-xtrabackup/2.2/innobackupex/innobackupex_option_reference.html) does not list --apply-log and --decompress as mutually exclusive.

      However, if they're both specified, only --decompress seems to work.

      While the how to guide lists the steps in the right order (decompress, apply log, as seen http://www.percona.com/doc/percona-xtrabackup/2.2/howtos/recipes_ibkx_compressed.html), the fact that these are not marked as incompatible in the option reference, and that the script prints 'Completed OK!' can lead people to believe the two can work at the same time, which can lead to a mysql instance being started with an unprepared backup.
