That is not on my list of things to add to newsyslog, but
I could certainly put something for this on the list...
If I do it, it will show up in 5.3-stable, and possibly
even in 4.x-stable (although that is less likely once we
have 5.3-stable).  What I might add is some generic way
to specify a program to run after a log file has been
rotated, where newsyslog will specify the name of the
(already rotated) log file when it runs the program.
