Taking into account the vast number of webmasters who have to present
each month a lot of hits to the advertisment or marketing droids, we'll
probably see more and more servers with "vanity Expires".

So, such an option in Squid, is, IMHO, necessary. It has to be tunable in
order to protect the legitimate interests of normal webmasters, which use
Expires for legitimate reasons.
