Bug Description

I've been thinking about profiles I'd to create so I can get a hang on the process and try to help out. I was thinking that it would be great to have a DenyHosts profile.

The configuration file describes many of the files denyhosts will need to write to and looking at the source should pretty easily tell use what files need to be read.

I'm not sure if there are specific vulnerabilities that could occur later but if they do vulnerabilities that could potentially happen could include removing ip's from hosts.deny; adding ip's to hosts.allow; less likely: changing other files.

I doubt these issues would happen, but if some weird regression happens it could be possible.
