Your wish is my command :) I've had this sublookup feature in the completewhois
test code for next version for several months, but did not think it was 
usefull being released on its own. Most of the new code for creating 
"summary portion" of domain whois is now ready, so I'll release it week 
earlier then planned as a christmas/hanukkah holiday gift, happy holidays!

Note: Currently supported by new code are .com/.net/.org/.info/.biz/.us/.cc/.la
In the future all country tlds and other main tlds will also have similar 
crsnic-like summary created at the top with nameservers taken from dns zone
and rest of the info from internal pre-defined info for that tld or from whois
