Hi Alex

   I just finished reading the ICAP/1.0 spec.

   After reading it, I got two questions:
1. How does squid (or an ICAP client) know where and
which ICAP server to contact when it receives a
request from an HTTP client?
2. How does squid (or an ICAP client) know a request
from an HTTP client requires request modification
(REQMOD) or response modification (RESPMOD)?

   It seems to me major vendors are going to adopt
ICAP, so I guess we should go this route instead to do
content processing.

   So who is that person who posted a patch? Is he/she
here? Maybe we can CC to him/her, so that he can join
the discussion.
