zen includes PBL, which certainly shouldn't be used for denying access
to http service.

i'm unsure why this program is named mod_spamhaus; it appears to be a
DNSBL access control filter for apache that can only query one DNSBL

i also notice that mod_spamhaus's DNSBL lookup routine only checks for
the presence or absence of a host record, rather than checking like a
sensible DNSBL client that the response lies in the 127/8 range.
