1. Cross-compile privoxy and set it up
2. Add the rules (to global.actions): "{+filter{all-popups}}"
3. In the config, make it forward all requests to amazon (fints-g7g.amazon.com:80)
4. In /opt/amazon/config/ServerConfig.conf, make the kindle use localhost:8118 as the proxy instead of fints-g7g.amazon.com.

It works, but I have no idea how it impacts battery life and/or performance. (Privoxy is designed to be small, so it shouldn't be that bad). Also, you get to block ads as an added bonus.
Would LOVE if this could be compiled into a "bin" file with an installer and an uninstaller
