[ale] Backup software incompatible versions

Yeah, and the people in charge either don't see the problem or don't
care.  They aren't even willing to talk to RedHat/Fedora about
maintaining both versions!   F32 still has 1.2.8 so I can't (yet) file
a bug, but apparently CentOS/RHEL/EPEL has already been updated!

There is a COPR with a 1.2.8 package that co-exist, but I see no reason
for RH (or other distros) not to include both!

Still, completely frustrating that the wire protocol is incompatible.  :(
Very poor software engineering choice, IMHO.
