SubjectRe: [Feature Request?] Inline compression of process core dumps

This looks somewhat better and might do the trick. Also fixes a very very
obscure security corner case. If you change core pattern to start with
the program name then the user can run a program called "|myevilhack" as
it stands. The patch checks for "|" in the pattern not the output and
doesn't nail a pid on to a piped name.
