I understand your concern. What needs to be understood is the separation of 
concerns principle. Let the Tor people make an anonymizing network. As has 
already been stated, there is an ExitPolicy feature that can be used to block 
sites. IIRC the squidGuard project maintains a blacklist of sites (including 
other kinds like software pirating, casinos, etc) that may be desired to be 
blocked. A sensible way to attack this may be to write a script that 
periodically downloads the blacklist and translates that into a set of 
ExitPolicy statements, then HUP tor to reload it.

What OS are you on? If a Un*x variant should might try tackling this, shell 
scripts are not that difficult.
