A proper implementation should/could have:
1. a server-manager panel to enable/disable transparent proxying of dns requests
2. an option to load one or more blacklists of known compromised sites
3. a whitelist to bypass list entries
4. a custom blacklist of web sites that the sysadmin want to be unreachable (think facebook)
