Suggestion/feature request

I would like a compile-time option to use tcpd to deny or allow requests.

That would mean reading /etc/hosts.allow and /etc/hosts.deny (or other specifiable files)
for hosts where connections would be allowed or not.

Running httpd out of /etc/inetd.conf is not efficient, so I would like to run one daemon that
would check these files -- ideally on a `per hit' basis, so the /etc/hosts.* files could be
changed on the fly without having to restart httpd.
