    <section id="blst_add">
	<title>
	    <function>blst_add([timeout])</function>
	</title>
	<para>
		Adds the source of the current message to the blacklist for
		<varname>timeout</varname> seconds. If timeout is missing or 0
		 it uses the default blacklist timeout 
		 (<varname>dst_blacklist_expire</varname>).
	</para>
	<example>
	    <title><function>blst_add</function> usage</title>
	    <programlisting>
...
if (src_ip==10.0.0.0/9)
    blst_add(30); # 30 s
else
    blst_add();  # use default blacklist timeout

    <section id="blst_add_retry_after">
	<title>
	    <function>blst_add_retry_after(min, max)</function>
	</title>
	<para>
		Adds the source of the current message to the blacklist for
		the time interval specified in the <emphasis>Retry-After</emphasis> 
		header.
		If the <emphasis>Retry-After</emphasis> header is missing, it will 
		fail (returns false).
		If the <emphasis>Retry-After</emphasis> value is less than 
		<varname>min</varname>, then <varname>min</varname> seconds will be 
		used instead.
		If the <emphasis>Retry-After</emphasis> value is greater than
		<varname>max</varname>, then <varname>max</varname> seconds will be 
		used instead.
	</para>
	<example>
	    <title><function>blst_add_retry_after</function> usage</title>
	    <programlisting>

# on_reply route

    if (! blst_add_retry_after(30, 3600))
        blst_add(60); # if no retry_after header add it for 60s
}

    </section>

    <section id="blst_del">
	<title>
	    <function>blst_del()</function>
	</title>
	<para>
		Removes the source of the current message from the blacklist.
		If the address is not present in the blacklist at the time of the call
		it returns false.
	</para>
	<example>
	    <title><function>blst_del</function> usage</title>

    blst_del();

    <section id="blst_is_blacklisted">
	<title>
	    <function>blst_is_blacklisted()</function>
	</title>
	<para>
		Returns true if the source of the current message is blacklisted.
	</para>
	<example>
	    <title><function>blst_is_blacklisted</function> usage</title>
	    <programlisting>
...
    if (blst_is_blacklisted()){
        log("message from a blacklisted source");
        drop;

	<section id="blst_set_ignore">
	<title>
		<function>blst_set_ignore()</function>
		<function>blst_set_ignore(flags)</function>
		<function>blst_rpl_set_ignore()</function>
		<function>blst_rpl_set_ignore(flags)</function>
	</title>
	<para>
		Set errors that will not be taken into account when deciding
		whether to blacklist a destination for the current message
		or a local reply to the current message.
	</para>
	<para>
		<function>blst_set_ignore(..)</function> works for forwarding the
		current message and <function>blst_rpl_set_ignore(...)</function>
		works for local replies to the current message.
	</para>
	<para>
		The variants of these functions with no parameters will ignore 
		everything (equivalent to passing 0xff).
	</para>
	<para>
		The flags are stored internally as a bitmask, and are applied by
		bitwise ANDing them together.  The following flags are available:
		<itemizedlist>
			<listitem>
				<emphasis>0x02</emphasis> - generic send error (send denied/
				 failed).
			</listitem>
			<listitem>
				<emphasis>0x04</emphasis> - connect failed (TCP, TLS or SCTP).
			</listitem>
			<listitem>
				<emphasis>0x08</emphasis> - ICMP error (not currently used).
			</listitem>
			<listitem>
				<emphasis>0x10</emphasis> - SIP transaction timeout.
			</listitem>
			<listitem>
				<emphasis>0x20</emphasis> - 503 reply (statefull mode only).
				For more details see <emphasis>tm</emphasis>
				<varname>blst_503</varname>.
			</listitem>
		</itemizedlist>
	</para>
	<note>
		TCP and TLS send and connect errors are handled per connection and
		not per message. The connection blacklist ignore flags are inherithed
		from the message that caused the connection establishment.
	</note>
	<example>
		<title><function>blst_set_ignore</function> usage</title>
		<programlisting>
    blst_set_ignore(6); # ignore send and connect errors
		</programlisting>

		<function>blst_rpl_clear_ignore()</function>
		<function>blst_rpl_clear_ignore(flags)</function>
