I just wish that DroidWall (there's no space in the name in the Market) allowed finer-grained restrictions, such as limiting an app to accessing only certain IP address space or domain space.

It probably won't be too difficult to get that if you wanted it... after all it's just a iptables firewall.

It's been a while since I've played with iptables, but I believe it's possible to tag packets based on UID. In that case, since apps on Android are assigned unique (for that device) UIDs on installation, it should be straight forward to tailor rules to individual apps.
