I don't feel too strongly about either option :).

It seems like we might get some minor performance benefits out of two
lists. Presuming that the proxy blacklist would be smaller (which seems
like a reasonable assumption), we may end up shortcutting the longer list
in the case that we are using a known, faulty proxy. In the case that a
proxy is not being used, we would potentially be parsing through a shorter
standard host list...

That said, I'm not sure how long these blacklists would typically get, so
it might not be worth the added interface complexity. What do you think?
