I would like to suggest a functionality to make this a bit more easy:
Add support for dnsbl's to determine the exitpolicy. I know this would
be non-trivial to implement, especially given the possible abuse
scenario's and the fact that exitpolicy's are currently published in
the directory, but it would be great to have universal "known good"
and "known bad" destinations that exitnodes could use.

Love like your heart has never been broken and
Dance like no one can see you.
