The jwhois client does this; it's a GNU project and I haven't looked at
it in ... 10+ years, but I used to use it a fair bit.  No idea what
they've done to adapt to the gTLD explosion.

Honestly, any wrapper script for use by an MTA should be caching
results.  And probably be a bit better about quoting, although at least
$sender_address_domain should be proof against those attacks.
