I'm very honored for this, but the results of my work on Squid 3 was
very far from my expectations:
my C++ knowledge is horribly low, and there was many bugs that I
cannot resolve myself for this reason.

I have always hoped than some other developer with a more strong C++
knowledge will try to fix them, but this was never happened: all
Squid 3 peoples seems to like more the development of new features
instead of fixing bugs.

As example: I have arranged the TPROXY forward port done by Steven in
November, but no one of the Squid 3 supporters seems to have tested
it giving any kind of feedback, a little disappointing ... :-(
So, sometimes I ask to me "why I'm still wasting my time on Squid 3 ?".
