Is there any kind of canonical list of whois client implementers?

I once threw code at the FreeBSD and OpenBSD whois clients to cause  
them to look for whois server names for ${zone} using ${zone}.whois- 
servers.net, and that seemed well-received (the changes were  
committed). It doesn't seem like much of a stretch to look for SRV  
records as well. But these are just two clients; I'm sure there are  
many more.
