Ah... I didn't object because I don't use sa-update. Nevertheless, if
I did use sa-update, I think I'd find the addition of a new DNSBL
slightly disconcerting.

I'm not very familiar with sa-update, but perhaps it should have
seperate channels similar to Debian's "stable" and "testing" releases.
A new DNSBL (IMO) would definitely be a "testing" release. End-users
could then subscribe to whichever channel suited their risk profiles.

David.
