Awesome, this is exactly what I was looking for.  Especially being 
written in python which would allow us to customize and add a much 
needed IP rate limiter using distributed counter columns, custom 
responses based on filters we can create for source IP or requested 
domain, and custom template responses for forward/reverse zones for IP 
allocations we have.  Actually looking at this code I could probably 
recreate this in node.js very easily and get the asynchronous power of 
that language to speed things up even more. Thank you very much!
