in reply to Advice for moving forward with modules

I don't know how many ip's you're anticipating to block...but if it gets very large you might consider using a DBM file for storing them -- that way you can randomly access them rather than grepping through a flat file.

Another thought is that you might want to also maintain a collection of block patterns so you can nail whole subnets or networks when desired.
