Ok... Squid is not a CPU hogger, but sometimes you need some 'special
provided by Dual CPU's.

If the plans of installing some Squids at carriers installations come
true (like UUNET, DIGEX, SPRINT, MCI and a large etcetera) here at this

your favourite favour of processor). It's possible that you need some
very HEAVY METAL here to filtrate
the traffic flowing.
