This is basically a consequence of the way buildbot's "database" works
-- logfiles are written byte by byte, because they can be very long,
while builds are written all at once, being pickles, with the added
complexity of writing and then compressing logfiles.

This should be fixed, and I would love to see a patch to do so.
