Re: Feature: quota control

Key things I'd look for:
 - quota's shouldn't be lost when squid restarts
 - people should be able to use external quota systems (they may have
   e.g. netflow or other systems tracking direct b/w use, and squid
   is pulling from those allowances when downloads are caused by a
   given user).

Both of which are nicely solved by Adrians suggestion of making sure
there are appropriate hooks in squid to let other software actually do

It would be nice to ship a default client for those hooks that does
something simple (like monthly quotas with a simple script to report on
current totals/reset). But even that is probably too much in core - it
should probably be a parallel project, like the reference icap client

(And isn't iCap enough to do quotas?, or is it too heavyweight? Perhaps
look at the in-squid iCap-alike Alex has been working on?)
