mysqlbackup should automatically uncompress backups when appropriate 

How to repeat:
mysqlbackup --backup-dir=/backups --with-timestamp --compress backup
mysqlbackup --backup-dir=/backups/some_backup_ts --datadir=/foo/bar copy-back-and-apply-log

Current behaviour:
mysqlbackup: ERROR: Please specify --uncompress option as backup was performed with --compress option.
And the restore stops.

Desired bahaviour:
mysqlbackup: INFO: Decompressing backup as is was created with the --compress option
And the restore continues.
