Hello Zach.

I am having trouble specifying output for plzip:
plzip --keep --output=mirror/headstart-2013-12-06 namecoind.old
plzip: Output file `namecoind.old.lz' already exists, skipping.

'--output' can only be used when reading from standard input. See http://www.nongnu.org/lzip/manual/plzip_manual.html#Invoking-plzip

'-o file'
When reading from standard input and '--stdout' has not been specified, use 'file' as the virtual name of the uncompressed file. This produces a file named 'file' when decompressing, and a file named 'file.lz' when compressing.

To achieve the effect you desire, use the following command:

  plzip -c namecoind.old > mirror/headstart-2013-12-06
