That's tricky -- I'd love to give FreeBSD users a somewhat well defined
way to use Squid+ICAP but it seems I am out on a limb here.

Does this apply to FreeBSD port users? I could add some additional notes
to squid.conf or the post installation information when ICAP support is
chosen -- although the people that are of the yelling kind would
probably ignore this anyway...

If the patch is not developed further, it should be not too difficult
for me to adapt it against changes in 2.6; it has been rather hard to
tell the changes in functionality from the changes in the Squid code

On the other hand if there is strong opinion to have ICAP support
removed from the FreeBSD port, please say so. I'd rather see you helping
me in keeping it in good shape, of course :)
