[rsbac] 1.2.8 uploaded to pre

To be honest, I'm somewhat frustraded by the new rsbac versions.
Whereas it is very good news to get new features, but actually sometimes 
it is very complicated to follow the versions.
Eg. the latest kernel security hole is just on the bugtraq and now I'd 
have to update the kernel of the computers. Yes, but ipsec is unstable 
(openswan) and 2.6 kernels sometimes also fail.

After that when I really find a version that is usable, the rsbac is so 
much changed, that I must go to every remote location to update rsbac, 
because a simple update surely causes hangs (rc_not_granted (e.g 
get_status) or acl problems).

So at every rsbac update I have to make plans and tests and after that go 
to the remote location, then the library or the c compiler fails etc etc.

Of course rsbac update-upgrade is also a must as all the old versions 
won't be available for the freshest kernels.

So I do not really know how others feel, but I'd be happy with less 
frequent version changes, more bugfixes, and more information on upgrading 
than having new feauters.

(I did not check what is the news of 1.2.8)
