I do like the concept behind the sleep idea, but this is going to tie up 
acesses to *YOUR* server, which means you're literally setting yourself up 
for a DoS.  I doubt that was a design goal.

I think setting up a script which hands off the vitising IP address to your 
firewall and stealths the requests would be much better.  If I could get an 
answer to a cache implementation question I posted here this morning, I'd 
be moving along to providing such a facility to those interested...

FTR, the implementation I have in place right now is invoked via a 
rewriterule in apache, so I don't log 404 errors.

  Please DO NOT carbon me on list replies.  I'll get my copy from the list.
