startup squid program suggestion change

 Just wanted to make a small suggestion, in the order "squid" checks
when first "running".

The last thing it "checks" is if it can bind to the port or not.
Would it be "possible" to change that check to the beginning of the
routine. My reasoning:

I have a cron job that 'runs /squid/bin/squid &' every 5 minutes, to
make sure its running, so that my "proxy" users will never be more
than 5 minutes of downtime, and it seems to put a "small" load on the
server by "rebuilding" it every time I startup.

Is there another way to check to see if its "running" and if so,
any suggestions would be appreciated.
