*Add host acknowledgement and acknowledgement stickiness
*Finished service problem acknowledgement. one more testcase
*Add REMOVE_HOST/SVC_ACKNOWLEDGEMENT external command
*Now broker get broks from pollers and reactionners. (Useful for Logs)
*Give Broker a way to make broks :) (like for it's own log)
*Add a problem/incident change states when apply. But it do not interfer with the standard check way of doing (or at least should not).
*Add some LSB init.d scripts
*Add max_plugins_output_length parameter to limit the checks output size.
*"Hack" the old nagios parameters: now status_file and nagios_log are catched. If the user defined them, but do not defined the good broker modules, we create them "on the fly". I hope one day we will remove it...
*Nested macros are managed (like USERN in ARGN macro).
*Add a pass about changing Nagios2 properties to Nagios3 ones.
*Add json outputformat to the livestatus module
*Add a broker module npcdmod (plus test_npcdmod) which writes a perfdata file suitable for pnp4nagios

*Add template handling to servicedependencies
*Add test_dependencies as the regression test
*Less status_dat verbosity :)
*Add a last_perf_data + macros to access last perfdatas as in https://sourceforge.net/apps/trac/shinken/ticket/76
