If you want to do this in Squid you will need to study quite a bit of
source code I am afraid. Especially if you are looking at the Squid-2.x
code base. Squid-3 is a bit easier with it's client-streams interface,
but documentation pretty thin on how to use them.

not having to worry about the details of what goes on within Squid. This
will be your quickest path.
