Squid storage method is redundancy?

Hi, pals.

I am using Squid 2.4 STABLE.

Squid use StoreEntry to store the metadata of a cached
object. Each StoreEntry has a list of storeclients. And
each of the storeclient has a reference to the object
on the disk/mem. So, each storeclient ( belongs to the
same StoreEntry ) has a reference to the same object on
disk/mem. Is that a redundancy?

Why not just store the reference to the object in the
StoreEntry? (Now Squid just store metadata of object in
StoreEntry, like timestamp).

Anyone has different opinions?

Best regards,
George, Ma
