No comment on the rest, at least for now, but if you're not actually
using the compress(1) algorithm (IIRC, you're using GZipWriter, which
is Deflate), don't use Z as the extension. Use gz as the extension.
This may be difficult to change on yaml.Z because of historical
issues, but this should not be compounded.
