There is nothing in the whiteclnt files to say "whitelist for greylisting
but not for normal DCC operations."  Because of how the whole pile
works, there would be difficulties in making something of the sort work.

Since greylist databases are very small, why not run `dbclean -G -i server-ID`
whenever the grey_whitelist file is changed?
