I came to the same conclusion, that it would be better to retain the
previous behaviour and just add a new ACL type.

So squid-1.0.8 will understand two regex pattern ACL types

    urlpath_regex e.g. ^/cgi-bin
    url_regex e.g. ^http://xxx

The old term 'pattern' is kept for backwards compatibility and
is the same as 'urlpath_regex'.
