if you actually read what i wrote, you would see that i never mentioned
having apache automatically report abuse.  i meant that the admin of the
web server could write emails to the abuse addresses of hosts that
attempted to infect him.  clearly, you would never want apache to
automatically be sending email to anyone.  that's just asking for abuse.
