If you just want the list of domain names and not the rest of the
whois data, it's not hard to get access to the zone files for most
gTLDs.  I arranged to get com, org, net, edu, biz, and info.

In each case you have to sign and fax back an agreement to the
registry in which you promise not to do naughty things with the data.
