Oh. I suggest you try out the new 1.0.0 release, as 0.8.2 does not 
support that feature.

But, you could do something like this with 0.8.2:

configure and install two separate gross installations, 
/usr/local/gross-grey and /usr/local/gross-dnsbl

Then, configure each to use same statefile. Of course, you have to be 
exremely careful to not allow them start while the other is running.
