It is already implemented.
Excerpt from squid.conf:
# TAG: cache_dir
# Directory for on-disk cache storage. The cache will change into
# this directory when running. The default is
# /somewhere/squid/cache.
# You can specify multiple cache_dir lines to spread the
# cache among different disk partitions.
