Modular squid would also permit the interesting idea of building much
of Squid's functionality into an Apache module. There is a proxy
module with Apache; although most of Apache seems quite well written,
I'm wondering why one would use that as opposed Squid - the only
reason I can think of is "less software to run and look after".

Although I'm a big Squid fan, I don't particularly enjoy coping with
the differences between Squid and Apache configuration. I'd be
*really* happy if I could combine the functionality with tcl.
