kstart 2.8

Navid Golpayegani sent me patches to allow k4start and k5start to background themselves as daemons and write their PIDs to a file, letting them be managed by Debian's start-stop-server. I reworked the patches some (by using the daemon() function if available, for instance) and included them in a new release.

The Debian package will also go into unstable when my sponsor gets a chance. I also found a bug in lintian causing it to throw errors on non-standard architectures (like amd64) in arch-specific build dependencies, so bug #322291 has been filed against lintian with a patch.

You can get the latest version from the kstart distribution page.
