sendmail 8.13 will have TCP MAP. This means, instead of using .db files, 
you'll be able to redirect your queries to some "query server". This 
query server may be, e.g. a script which converts the query to DNS 
query. Check sendmail 8.13 alpha version. At contrib directory, there is 
a sample perl script to answer this kind of queries.

You can do that with a simple perl script. I've a 150 lines long to 
generate our private RBL with bind. If you want to do that with domain 
names instead of IP addresses, it will be shorter indeed.

I can send it to you if you want.
