Hi. Your hack is quite nice. More flexible redirectors is on the

In http_accel, proxy auth can be performed. The reason it's not there by
default is because more users of the accel logic in squid are the
transparent cache users, and they invariably don't believe the statement
that proxy auth and transparency don't play nice.

IIRC just define PROXY_AUTH_ON_ACCEL and you can use proxy auth. There
is full support for acceleration style proxy auth with basic in 2.4.
