Thanks for the nudge from the path I was taking. I will look into
'helpers' and 'external_acl.'

If I do get the client portion of mysql to compile in with squid, I will
post the results.

One other question:

In theconfigure script for your libTrie module, you have the
'--disable-inline.' What exactly does this mean? I read the
description, but I am not sure what working inline with squid means.

Seriously thanks for all your help!
