I think we're looking at this from two different angles. One thing that struck me when unlimited ban lists came up in discussions with people who used RedZone was that they weren't interested in banning alts of people they'd banned, particularly, and they certainly weren't interested in getting them banned from anywhere else, and if it were possible simply to use the parcel or estate tools to ban them from your own land and forget about them, without any scripted assistance, they'd far prefer to it that way.
I don't really see, though, why any existing scripted banlist solution would try to repopulate parcel or region banlists. They normally work by detecting the presence of a banned avatar, removing him, and then putting him on the parcel banlist for only a matter of hours, so they don't have to go through the process of removing him again if he tries immediately to return a couple of times before realising he'd better go elsewhere or create an alt.
IOW, an existing system, if it's sanely scripted, would only try to repopulate the list if people return, which they won't if they're banned from SL or the accounts are inactive.
I guess what I'm saying is that, at least in most cases, if you didn't have to worry about pruning your banlists manually every few months, you probably wouldn't have any use for a scripted solution of any sort, other than conventional security orbs.
