Yes, of course....but squid stops for a while: current connections have
a lifetime limit (shutdown_lifetime parameter) while new connections
obtain a network error during this period.
I think an implementation where squid listens on a administration port
and reloads without "stop'n'start" their ACLs. Maybe the ACL lists can
be loaded on a shared memory where squid and his administration tool
read/write by a semaphore. Yes, 2000 is not so far......
