so I'm assuming that my zone would be named something like rbl.mydomain.com
and then each IP address that I would block would have an ip address of

insert into records (domain_id, name, type,  content)  values  
('<zone_id>',  '' , 'A', '')

Is this correct?

Its a given that I would periodically have to purge, but I'd rather have 
the system check against the localhost, then zen.spamhaus.org, then others.
