Re: ACL extensions

I have a large list of sites that we wish to reject access to. Currently
the process for setting up ACL is not condusive to a large list. Your
reference to reading separate ACL files probably will address this.
Secondly, and more importantly, since your ACL process is linear, a large
list is cause for excessive delays. Some type of hash table or database
lookup would probably resolve this issue.

Those are my most pressing issues. Additionally, I would like to see ACL
support for PICS. This is not as pressing but it would be desirable.

Thanks again,
