I've been experimenting with the number of entries in the list, using the
`file` mechanism. It seems to be fine up to about 7000 entries (I was
wrong about there being about 5000). Once we reach around 7194 entries or
208169 bytes behaviour becomes increasingly eratic. Increasing numbers of
URLs are incorrectly matched and rejected. By 8000 entries everything is
Using the include: mechanism, I couldn't get it to work at all until I
terminated the last line with a line break! After that it seemed to behave
similarly to using the `file` mechanism.
