Just comment all checks out. I thought that setting grey_threshold = 0
would suffice, but it seems to be broken at the moment. If that worked
you could combine traditional lister, but setting block_threshold would
enable grossd to block too suspicious hosts.

What MTA do you use? With SJSMS you could run Gross as a replicated pair
and just restart grossd daemons one at a time. Just restart on host1 and
check with telneting to status port that it's ok, and restart on host2.

I left this out from 1.0, because it would require some sort of locking
or other means to alter the configuration on the fly. Now that all the
world is no longer SJSMS this makes more sense.
