From an implementers point of view I have a strong opinion against it ;-)
simply it is not too easy to put in the way the whoisd works now. If people
deperately need this, I can have a look to see how much work it would be to
include this in whoisd. My feeling as a database maintainer is that I like
the fact that sources are strictly seperated (ie no cross references).
