I was thinking of creating a named pipe for the access log and doing it
on the fly like that...

The top script could use hashed arrays, this way it would only swap out the
relevant bits into ram, so you could get away with a large increase in
"total virtual size" of squid and associated programs, but without much
change in the "total real memory used"... I hope :)
