Actually, it's sort-of doable already, if you don't mind using some
bailing wire and chewing gum.

Remember that tcp_wrappers will do a PTR lookup to get the hostname - so
you just jigger your DNS server so it answers PTR lookups for "bad" addresses
as '<ip-addr>.blackhole.your.domain', and forwards along "good" addresses
for resolution by the actual PTR owner.

Then just add to /etc/hosts.deny:

ALL: ALL : *.blackhole.your.domain

(Untested, untried, actually implementing it may cause warts or worse. ;)
