This has actually already been done in Erlang. The Erlang startup  
Bluetail made a Mail Robustifier (BMR) back in 1999.

BMR was heavily used by a large swedish ISP which developed it  
further 2001-2003, when me and Jenny Dybendahl implemented very  
similar functionality (we called it tarpitting) to what is described  
in the Onlamp article.
