  The Pythonic part, the lack of a whitelist, the 10-20 or so configuration

  While it works just fine, sshguard:
     * is natively compiled code, optimized for speed and low cpu/memory usage
     * supports whitelisting
     * supports IPv6 (which nobody cares about, yet)
     * does not require filters (though doesn't always work with all log files)
     * recognizes hostnames

  I hope to get a bit more involved in sshguard development to include HTTP
  and Asterisk log support.
