The manual page talks about "domains" rather then hostnames, meaning
that we should consider the entries as regexp in the form .*.name.
This would make presence of *bo&h* whitelist/blacklist meaningful.


Any use of regexp-like strings will require us to implement the concept
of a *best matching* line, so that the 'stricter' mathcing is used.
In the above example, would be allowed, altogut
matching both blacklist and whitelist.
