Well, I am always a bit ambivalent about distributing large
block lists like this. We do have our (very small) block list.
I could setup a blocklist as a "trial", and see how it works.
I will also have to check how to best filter such a blocklist.

For example, many valid mail servers do attempt auth lookups
and will show up for blocked port 113 requests. Some mail
servers are even more aggressive and will scan each host connecting
to them for open proxies. So a cas-by-ase whitelist is needed
for these servers.

Have to think about it. but overall, it looks like a lot
of work to do it right. And there are enough bad RBL's already.
