[jcifs] 1.2.12 heads-up about SID.toString()

Please be advised that the SID.toString() method behavior will be
rolled back to 1.2.10 behavior which is to return the numeric SID
representation. The SID.toString() bahavior change was inappropriate
and broke backwards compatibility. To get the Windows ACL editor display
string a new SID.toDisplayString() method has been added.

If you would like to try this or you are actively coding an application
that will depend on forward compatibility (JG) please try 1.2.12b in the
download area.

As soon as I get feedback on a possibly significant DFS change in 1.2.12b
I will make it "final".
