> bozo robots?

On that topic, anyone have any cute ideas to fight this scourge?

I've got twice (thrice) daily occurances of robots completely 
ignoring exclusion rules, firing off multiple CGI programs to the
point of hitting system process limits and really hurting my
little sparc 2. Seems that it has become quite fashionable to
run a robot. (or unleash one rather)

One thing I have tried lately that seems to be helping (but not
in all cases) is to stick /wrench.html in the tree and set a
Redirect for that URL. Some robots seem to be ignoring Location:
as well.

Ideas appreciated.
