Parent? Sibling? can't do what I want it to..

What I need is for this to work,
where the.machine.abroad has an IP of an.ip.num.ber, and in my case, is
not on my LAN.


acl cache_abroad src an.ip.num.ber/

cache_host the.machine.abroad parent 3128 3130

cache_host_acl the.machine.abroad !cache_abroad

and a similar configuration at the other end.

The effect being, that all MISSes are passed to the.machine.abroad, EXCEPT
for ones originating _from_ the.machine.abroad. This enables the two
machines to be each other's parents, much like the spouse type was
intended to be.

So: I can't see a way of doing this, because although syntactically
correct, the above config fails. Can it be done? is this going to be
supported soon? Otherwise, I'll have to hack something myself...
