logrotate script for mythbackend logfile (weekly, 8 rotations)

I was looking into logrotate when helping to debug why the logrotate script was not rotating logs under particular circumstances (atrpms-users list, March 26 2007). I also noticed there was no similar script in /contrib for SVN, so thanks again to Axel for the inspiration.

The attached script will rotate and compress the mythbackend logfile weekly for 8 rotations, irrespective of log size, and will keep the most recent logfile uncompressed until the next rotation.

This script relies on the presence of a mythbackend pidfile, support for which I have included in #3370.

Cheers, Nick
