Thanks to those that gave me some pointers. I struggled with this a bit
today but eventually got something that seems to work. If anyone wants to
look the test script I wrote is here
Like I said, it seems to work but if anyone can see anything glaringly bad
please let me know !
 At one stage I had a nice little fork bomb running, it got to about 1000
gzip processes all trying to zip one of 10 files before I figured out how
to kill it off... whoops!
