Much wanted feature.

Hi, I would like to suggest a feature I would like to see implimented.

        A parent option in the config.
        Allow selecting parent by full regex (insted of just domain).
         I think there are prob several uses. The reason I want it is:
        I'm using squid on a slow link. I have setup software that allows
        me to setup a compressed tunnel between my cache and my parent.
        This easily provides 50% compression on html and other text.
        Unfortunatly, when jpgs, avis, zips, etc are pushed through
        the performance is poor, and the expansion makes it slower.
         Since many pages have a single html doc and many images, the
        expansion of the images is a real drag.

Is there any plan to impliment this sort of thing?
Is there anyone else intrested in having it?
