ext2 - it's the most stable for one thing, and it's definitely
sufficiently fast

hmm - there were thoughts about creating a "huge file" that had it's
own internal squid-specific structure to get around the lag that you
get when you "open" and "close" files... there were various problems
with this...

If you are going to have a lot of acl's you should probably use
splay trees... (especially if you are going to have lots of ACL,
but only some of them are going to be used frequently)
