OK, my plan is to start tracking Squid 3 with PRE6. Are you OK if I
keep it up to date by pulling in all changesets up to a certain
date/changeset number (this would be roughly similar to what the FreeBSD
vim port does) if needed? "Needed" would mean as indicated by developers
on squid-users or -dev because critical issues had been fixed.
