should I mention that the (optional) reputation based dcc.pm (which is
supported in SA 3.3.x) is really CHEAP?
(no, I don't work for them, don't own part of them, don't get
commissions from them, and yes, you need to download and recompile a
new dccd client/and/or server)
If you do less than 100K in queries per day (100K passing through SA),
you don't even need to run your own servers. > 100K, the bandwidth would
suggest that you would want to run one or more caching DCC servers in
your network.

I would use spamhaus if their costs were similar to rhyolites for the
commercial dcc.

(yes, spamhaus, when you told us we were in non-compliance, we tried,
several times to contact you to try to license it, and we got ignored.
we only know of the costs via third parties who reported it. we admin
we have no direct knowledge of the costs because you never responded to
our requests for pricing)

look at the DCC rules for a hint at the new features.
