Thanks Justin that's helpful. So as I look at my old setup I see that I
indeed had move and compress manually on a cron job, so I'll just do
that for the extract_files dir. Maybe a feature request down the road
would be (maybe in broctl.conf) to be able to add "pre" rotate and
"post" rotate scripts. Just a thought.
