Hello Riccardo,

I have added support for the full hostnames to the RBL module. However,
the transition plan is a bit unclear to me.

If I switch the default configuration to use `dbl-beta` prefix and full
hostnames being enabled, it will work but then it will be broken
**after** Jan 31st. If I switch on the full hostnames support but with
the production `dbl` prefix it will be broken **until** Jan 31st.
Similarly, if I change nothing, DBL will be broken **after** Jan 31st.

Apparently, I cannot schedule my Rspamd releases according to your
release cycles. So without a window when both `dbl-beta` and `dbl` would
work together with full hostnames there is still a possibility of
malfunction for the DBL list.
