Oh well. Jeff Newton writes:

So when a browser accesses a cookie-bearing page through v1.2, the
cookie will be stripped for all accesses after the first and before
the page expires? Or will squid still send a HEAD request to the
destination and then pass along that cookie? (Of course, Yahoo's
busted HEAD will still send the whole body, but...)

I realize the current beta simply denies cacheability. What are
the plans?
