1) To avoid delays it has to be done as the dns lookups is done today eg with
            separate processes.

2) You can not cash the data since you will have different ports on the squid
   squid side for each request. ( a lookup for each object from the server
   (sigh) ).

It will slow down squid a lot!!!!
