 Honestly, If you are using squid in a production environment, if possible
apply appropriate rules. Run 2 squids as peers as the top of your
hierarchy, and ensure as complete a coverage as possible of an proxy.pac
that will allow load ballancing and redundancy, that way you can do your
reconfigs/rolling upgrades etc.

 A hack is great, but it doesn't solve the "problem"..
