  Description     : An implementation of the WHOSON protocol
   Quoting 'README':
   This software is supposed to work as a "reference
   implementation" of the suggested "whoson" internet protocol.
   The protocol is expected to be employed on "spam relay
   protected" mail servers to allow travelling customers still
   send their email via the protected server. For this, a
   realtime database of "temporarily trusted" IP addresses is
   maintained by a special daemon program. The database may be
   filled by, e.g. POP/IMAP servers, and used by SMTP server.
   Another possible use of the protocol is to have the database
   filled by RADIUS/TACACS server for all dialup clients, and
   SMTP server using it to put the user identity into the
   "Received" header along with the source IP address.
