Ok, it was an unlucky experssion, maybe because a blacklist was my
first idea I theoretically implemented and played with.

Okay, what about
- a blacklist
- a whitelist
- a default (accept/decline)

For the greylisting: AFAIR "greylisting" means to block unwanted
<stuff, usually SPAM> by inspecting the behaviour of the sending
server. I'm not sure how to convert this working princip to a SIP
connection attempt. Maybe sth. like max. N attempts per minute or so?
What did you have in mind for greylists?
