To create a compressed and applied backup I first tried:
mysqlbackup --compress backup-and-apply-log
But that's a unsupported combination of options.

Then I tried
mysqlbackup --backup-image=- backup-to-image-and-apply-log | gzip > foo.mbi.gz
But thre is no backup-to-image option which can apply the logs.

The only way to get it done is:
mysqlbackup backup-and-apply-log
mysqlbackup --backupimage=- backupdir-to-image | gzip > foo.mbi.gz
But that takes multiple steps, which is slow and error prone.

See description.
