[SURBL-Discuss] domains that roll out of sc.surbl.org

Just a thought: given the dynamic nature of the sc.surbl.org data, 
it might be useful to have a listing history for the SURBL+ checker 

Something along the lines of
domain xxxx currently (listed|notl listed) in sc.surbl.org
- added ddmmyyyy hhmm
- removed ddmmyyyy hhmm
- added ddmmyyyy hhmm
- removed ddmmyyyy hhmm

This way it would be possible to check whether old
domains are being left dormant until they work their
way out of the list and then being resurrected 
later on.

Another thought was to make a separate historic list of
domains that are removed from sc.surbl.org when there
are no new reports. People who want to do more 
aggressive filtering could also use the historic list in
addition to the other lists. The risk of FPs is still low 
because I can't forsee there being many "reformed" 
spammer domains.
