Default blocking ssh bruteforce with blacklist.py

quick question for the list. Has anyone used the blacklist.py python script in an ISPConfig machine for managing ssh bruteforce attacks? I've seen a significant uptake in ssh attacks in my log, and I'd like to automate the blacklisting.

Here's the python script I was looking at using:

I dont see any problems with using that script. Personally I use denyhosts for that, you will fing tutorials for denyhosts here on howtoforge.
