Nevermind. One shouldn't configure Squid while tired. ;-)

Now that httpd accel hosts are cache_peers I can used cache_peer_access
to make the distribution decisions...Don't know why I didn't think of
that, as I've used it in the past for similar purposes.

That said,
suggests that some mechanism for load balancing based on client exists
in rproxy, though I don't see anything relevant in the configuration
options. (This item is marked "(done)" in the todo list.)
