add --compress option to mysqlbinlog for 5.6

Registered by Vlad Lesin on 2013-12-12

Both mysql and mysqldump programs include the -C, --compress options "Use compression in server/client protocol". The mysqlbinlog command should also have this capability as mysqlbinlog in mysql 5.6 has the --raw and --never-stop capabilities which is very useful to pull binlogs across the internet for DR purposes. Using the compressed protocol would help reduce bandwidth and speed up transfers. May want to also consider adding ssl options for similar reasons. Basically given that mysqlbinlog has --read-from-remote-server option it should have all options related to connections that other client utilities have.
