Hacking uses_host_header to only fetch from Accel.host

I've got a problem here. I need the "uses_host_header" turned on so that
my virtually hosted content will be cached correctly. I however am doing
HTTP accelerator for a single server that hosts a bazillion domains, each
virtually hosted via the Host: header. I need to make squid connect
to the accelerator host, regardless of the what the HTTP/1.1 Host: hostname
resolves to. I've tried hacking the request->host, but I just end up
getting a cache entry that's labeled for the accellerator host.

So, is squid really as bad as I think it is in regards that there is no
single place where I can change it to get the data from the accel host,
but log to the cache the HTTP/1.1 Host: hostname?

I would greatly appreciate any pointers people could provide towards
finding the "right" place to do this.

Also, is there plans in the works to modularize Squid to be more like
