And in large requires a total rewrite of everyting. Squid is currently a
event driven application, and turning this into a well designed and
efficient multithreaded application is not worth the effort. I'd rather
start from scratch than try to push the current Squid code into a
multi-threaded model, and use the current Squid code as source for ideas
on how to handle expiration, protocol conversions and such.
