Did the architecture of the Netscape proxy-server change in version 2? Has
it become a single process server which caches metadata in memory just
like Harvest/Squid?

I've seen version 1 of the Netscape proxy-server and its architecture
looks like a CERN daemon (no caching of metadata in memory, URL's directly
translated into pathnames without hashing, etc.) but with preforked
children. The problem I had with version 1 was that performance collapsed
for large access lists (>1000 IP numbers).
