Thanks for the initiative Stephen! Could you please rebase the patch against current trunk

> We would like compress the data while transferring from our source system to target system.
One way to do this is to write a map/reduce job to compress that after/before being transferred.
This looks inefficient. 
> Since distcp already reading writing data it would be better if it can accomplish while
doing this. 
> Flip side of this is that distcp -update option can not check file size before copying
data. It can only check for the existence of file. 
> So I propose if -compress option is given then file size is not checked.
> Also when we copy file appropriate extension needs to be added to file depending on compression
type.
