Yep, interesting idea. Wouldn't be that difficult to implement
actually, it would be a configuration frontend for blocking rules in
Squid (+ possibly transparent proxy configuration through
SuSEfirewall2 to enforce HTTP requests to go through Squid).

+ implement a protocol and a sample implementation of a website
blacklisting system (similar to Razor for spam or DenyHosts for SSH)
through a central website or even a P2P architecture

Good idea as well ;)
