Ack .. besides, let's not forget that part of the attraction to Squid is
that it's *small* and *fast*. Although, I s'pose it could be added as a
compile-time option so that those who want it could use it, and those who
don't would have a "classic" binary.

To the original author, hoping to perhaps conserve bandwidth on a 64Kbps
link - apart from whatever compression techniques may be available in your
network gear, all I can suggest is that you carefully watch/study the
usage logs of your proxy, then tune the TTLs and so forth to retain as
much information as possible, thereby reducing traffic *that* way.
