 Some sort of script that checks for the process running could be one
 idea, but the problem with this is that the squid process could have
 entered a "hung" state (not that i've seen that for quite awhile)

 A solution to this is to say attempt to access the cachemanager
 "status" data or some such... no response means that the cache is
 either dead or zombied... so kill it and restart.
