Why can't the ISPs get their act together and use a whois client that
allows a simple request like "whois name" to find the appropriate
database? This is simple enough that it could be done with a PERL script
frontend to the regular whois client and as an added bonus it could lookup
info in the country-code TLD databases as well.
