If you have multiple IP addresses on the Squid server, you can make Squid
bind to specific IP addresses, with bind_address on older versions,
or tcp_incoming_address on newer ones. However, this requires that
you have one Squid process per server.

What I'm looking forward is to having a single Squid process listen to
all the addresses, the way Apache does, or support the draft HTTP/1.1
spec, where it can differentiate between the various virtual hosts
through the HTTP Host: header. Squid developers, is this trivial, or
does it require major code changes?
