Bug Description

Subunit streams are a little fragile when it comes to having line endings processed, and the streams themselves are highly compressable, so many people pass around compressed subunit logs.

It would be nice if testr were aware of this and did the decompression for you.

e.g.
   $ gzip -dc my-subunit-stream.log.gz | testr load

could become:
  $ cat my-subunit-stream.log.gz | testr load

Or, when bug 620386 is fixed:
  $ testr load my-subunit-stream.log.gz

summary: - testr load should handle compressed input
+ testr load doesn't handle compressed input
