A couple of questions

sorry if i'm bothering you, perhaps there's also a FAQ, but i couldn't
find a pointer to it in the squid source.

I've got squid (1.0.0, i think) running for quite some time now, and
i'm basically happy with it. However, it seems that i've got some
problems when it comes to abort requests where the response seems to
be too slow. (We pay our Internet access by time, thus we cannot keep
slow connections up for hours.) I've already enabled `quick_abort' in
squid.conf, but since FTP requests are handled by an external process,
it seems that ftpget keeps running nevertheless.

My questions now are: is there any way to _disable_ all external
processes? I'm not very fond of the dnsserver processes either, since
i think their basic task is something my own nameserver does already
handle as well. My operating system doesn't suffer from any problems
forking large processes, so i don't think i benefit anything (except
perhaps a few percent of swap usage) from having `ftpget' being an
external program. If implementing it as an internal child would help
in aborting correctly, i'm more than happy with another solution.

Did i get everything wrong? Are there any other opinions or pointers
to docs? Thanks for all replies,
