Using a squid cache as a read only cache

G'day all.

I was just wondering about the possibility of using an existing squid
setup as a read-only cache for users who want to browse the web without
incurring a volume bill.

Is is possible to have squid listen on two ports for connections, say
8080 and 8090, and if it receives a request on 8080 it fetches the
document (if it is not in cache) but if it receives a request on 8090
then it does not fetch the documnet if it is not in cache. You could
obviously patch the source code, but is their any other way of doing it?
