This is really quite a lot of overhead for squid. Come on, its only going to
be used for things like MSIE/Netscape/Demo downloads with lots of mirror

pick out most of these cases (e.g. looking for * without
severely impacting the performance of squid.

Let's keep these minority gains out of squid. Squid is nice and fast, and it
would be nice to keep that.
