Ah, why didn't I think of identd? I should have known that. Sm:)e.

We are using the content filtering provided by our SonicWall firewall. 
It's very inexpensive (compared to most other hardware solutions) and 
has been very dependable. Thanks to my squid proxy and a little 
squidguard hack I picked up from this list, all google traffic is forced 
into safemode as well.

Thanks for the hint.
