Wouldn't it be better, if we use proxy instead of all-purpose network
software? I was thinking about with some function attached
to request forwarding and a simple response handler which could allow users

1. enable/disable flood proxy
2. edit gathered urls (only delete for now, later full edit)
3. dump flood file

It would be cool if we could extend mod_proxy, but if this is impossible
(because of some technical issues I'm not aware of) we might do our own thing.
Writting a small, customized proxy in C/APR, Perl, Python, whatever schouldn't
be all that hard.
