Thanks for the rich response, Roger.  I think we're at least going to
be able to make a very strong case that only our library's proxy
servers should be "trusted" by services we subscribe to... not our
entire network; which would have us with an exit policy of 3k-20k
entries long (and via the agreement that we had to work out with the
System and Network Security folks, we have to disallow all exit
traffic to those addresses... which is a royal pain in the ass, you
can imagine.). -Joe
