Programs like BlackIce get almost all the way there, except they seem

to make all the choices, one might distribute configuration files with

for the warning to "score" the warning in some way (e.g., if the
program is not a known browser, it's somewhat more suspicious for it
to be talking to a web server).

Have I missed sme great piece of software that does this already
(Linux or Windows), or is this an unmet need?

Linux kernel firewalling, especially the iptables (availabe only in
kernel 2.4.*). With iptables you can even search the packets for a
string and deny/allow on that! There is a mailimg list about iptables
and netfilter:
