Indeed. That's why we've created "RISwhois" [1], a whois interface to
the BGP data collected by RIPE NCC's RIS project [2].  You query
riswhois.ripe.net like you'd query whois.ra.net, but the data
returned are from active BGP feeds, not manually registered objects.

Since RISwhois uses the same format as RADB, it's trivial to have lft
consult the RIS BGP tables: simply replace the string "whois.ra.net"
by "riswhois.ripe.net" in the whois.c file and recompile.
