I am probably missing something, but a digest with all 0's is not only
useless, but may, theoretically, affect your sibling decisions to peer with
you. Also, eventually, you will have to rebuild the digest and pay the
penalty anyway.

IMO, if digest rebuild slows Squid, we have to figure out why and fix the
problem (the problem does not exist on Duane's caches, I think).

How do you know that a digest rebuild hurts Squid?
