yes - this is the way squid does it.

i submitted a patch to squid 1.2 to duane to change this behaviour, a
few months back. haven't checked to see if its in there - but the
patch is fairly trivial.

the whole byte-reporting in squid 1.2 is very very different to 1.1.
in 1.1, it wasn't so apparent to work out your 'cache savings'. it is
very clear in 1.2.

if you're looking for adventure, you may want to try patching it in yourself.
the patches are at
