Thinking about 4.1 softban/purges (yes, already...)

I don't think it's too much to add to a 4.0.x release, specially when we're
at 4.0.0 now. The changes are for the most part limited to pointer changes.
Only place with minor logic changes is for persistent, but that's pretty
experimental anyways.

But if it isn't for 4.0.x, then maybe it can be applied to 4.1 (in a dev
branch or when that time comes). I will use it for my project, and I'd
thought I'd share it now that it's done. Any feed back would be most
welcome, so I don't stray too far away from what will become 4.1.
