Fail2ban 0.8.7 release

Recall that fail2ban is a daemon that scans the user-defined log-files and automatically adds the rule to iptables for triggering the defined filters. For example, you can specify a rule that after 2 failed attempts to log on smtp, IP-address of the remote side will be blocked for a certain number of minutes.
- Added filter / jail for lighttpd-auth.
- pyinotify as a backend.
