To alleviate this problem, XMPP WG now has a draft extension "Simple
Communications Blocking" [1] which, I beleive, is designed to be a
"no-brainer mode" for privacy lists.

The problem is that ejabberd does not implement this (but the supposedly
working patch exists [2]) and I'm also unsure about support in clients
(Tkabber's development version (that is, unreleased) supports it, Psi
most probably does not support it, may be Psi+ and Gajim do... Better
ask in jdev at conference.jabber.org room).
