I would object to automatically including this. We process over a million emails a day.
The usage page is not too clear if they would mind this load for just the blacklist, but
I suspect not. In order to turn it off, I'd have to edit local.cf, make a new package,
and get IT to schedule a deployment for it to a large number of scanners. If this
went through, we'd need a good amount of notice to put that in place.
