Well, this is quite a feature to add. Personally, I intend on using
this in conjunction with a transdir translator to store my apache
logs. Transdir will be a stripped down hostmux, that doesn't mux
anything. So I'll do this
settrans /var/log/apache /hurd/transdir /hurd/filemux --date="%Y-%W"
This will store my apache logs in /home/jim/apache, and
/var/log/apache will just be a reference to this weeks logs. Now if
I can figure out a way to add transparent gunzip to filemux, I will
have found a way to replace all the things I know logrotate does with
translators that do the job better and more accurately.
 If anyone has a better name for this idea, I would be happy to
