There is some areas where this can be improved however.

1. The writes to the pipe should be non-blocking to avoid halting Squid if
the script can not keep up.

2. To deal with the pipe being non-blocking you need buffering of the log
writes. And a (perhaps configurable) limit of how much log data can be

And then the obvious but less fun, for these changes to make it into the
main Squid code tree it needs to be made within the Squid-3 tree.
Squid-2.5 is feature frozen since many years back..
