mod_wl: Getting those unwanted user agents

    Hey y'all,

    First, I'm new to this forum I hope to meet
    some great apache enthusiasts. Having said that, this is my
    first post here and it is about a module I was writing -- yes it's
    an apache module.

    So the module I am making is really an attempt to fend off
    any unwanted search engine spoofers -- or more specifically
    user agents that pretend to be search engines or even
    hide their true identity for that matter. It works by performing a
    reverse-dns to forward-dns lookup, and places ips in the desired
    list. When done properly should prevent user agent spoofing.

    Being this is an apache forum,
    I'd be very interested in hearing any suggestions and feedback you
    guys may have or even if you think this module is practical or not.

    overview here:
