The application I have in mind is to see if it helps to keep DNSBL

If it's getting evicted from cache because other things are getting
used more often, why do you want to put your thumb on that scale? The
other queries are presumably benefitting just as much from the caching.

I think John's issue is that he's seeing those other queries *not* benefiting
from the caching because they get pushed out by DNSBL queries that will likely
not ever be used again.  You don't want your cached entry for www.google.com
to get pushed out by a lookup for a dialup line somewhere in Africa.
