rsyslog work log

Yesterday's rsyslog work log:
- updated "mysql paper" to include information for other databases, too
- worked a bit on the rsyslog/syslog-ng comparsion - slowly gets in better
shape ;)
- wrote doc on how to use the expression engine
- changed ABNF to fully support old property names
- added case-insensitive comparison operations
- MILESTONE: initial expression support completed
- (finally;)) released 3.12.0
- implemented environment-settable debug options
- enabled debug-support to pull runtime options from environment (bug 18)
- bugfix: removed debugging code that I forgot to remove before releasing
3.12.0 (does not cause harm and happened only during startup)
- added "help" command to runtime debug flags
- switched to git as a test run; currently I maintain both the cvs
and git repositories (via manual file copies). If all goes well, will switch
to git-only when I feel good about it (a week or so?)
