First, I would assume that they'd want a userland script, not a
server-based solution (I use that word advisedly, usually feeling it to be
reserved to trajectory specialists, puzzlers, and the like).
Countermeasures: I've noticed that the registrars in particular of late
have taken to watermarks with a passphrase or number which has to be
"combination lock" snares. The 'bot motel (12 code lines targeting
Apache.pm) comes to mind.
