There are 2 balcklists.
blacklists that dont allow insertion ito the DB in the first place.
blacklists that dont allow exposure of the events over dbus per default.

The first is no issue and could be implemented instantly, while the second
is a matter of definition. Should the profiling be done on the client side
or should that be in zeitgeist?
