Yeah, I considered this, too, but finally came to the conclusion it's
uncool to do so. :-)

Like I said, there are many different ways and applications out there,
enough for everyone to find the one that fits. But I didn't see no
reason to install phython or whatever, just to have some big
application maintain my /etc/hosts.allow.

And as long as the tcpwrapper config file doesn't grow too rapidly,
it's become fun again checking the logfiles...
