I guess what I meant was Squid could probably fill any amount of disk
that you give it. The key is, as you already mentioned, to
find out where the returns start diminishing. The evidence that
I've seen indicates that 5-10GB of disk will get you 90-95% of
the maximum hit rate you could ever expect. The SPA paper
has better numbers than I'm making up here.
