Agreed - it would probably be pretty easy to do, too.  Use mod_access as a
base, and figure out how often you'll want to open /etc/hosts (once at
startup/restart, every hit? etc.).  Sounds like a great first Apache
programming project!

It's okay, we've never held up good programming skills as an absolute
requirement :)
