Add a patch to py-denyhosts


I want to add a patch to py-denyhosts.  Currently, denyhosts add
"denying hosts" as:

        daemon: denying-hosts-ip-address : deny

on FreeBSD only.  On other platform, they are added as:

        daemon: denying-hosts-ip-address

It works fine under the condition:

        * Configure denyhosts to add "denying hosts" to hosts.deny.
        * Configure hosts_access(5) to allow access default.

But, if you want to configure hosts_access(5) to *deny* access
default, it dosen't work except FreeBSD.  If denyhosts works on *BSD
as the same as FreeBSD, this problem will be solved.

(1) Add allowing hosts to hosts.allow.
(2) Add denying hosts to hosts.deny and lastly add "all: all: deny".
(3) Configure denyhosts to "denying hosts" to hosts.allow with ":deny".

Any comments?
