I couldn't crash it with a polymix-4. Both commloops and
chunked_mempools seems to have a harder time during fills than the older
Squids, but otherwise performance is very much equivelent.

Just thought I'd throw in my limited experience. I'll get the benchmark
results posted shortly.

Doesn't this also make te (among other inline content trickery) much easier?

I'd like to see ranges back as soon as possible--in accelerators this
can have a huge impact. (Flashget and such can destroy hit ratio
without it.)
