Why hardwired redirector string?

Hi there

I've moved over to using squirm (http://www.senet.com.au/squirm/) for my
redirector in squid - it's great.

One thing that threw me when I first turned it on was that "ps" showed 5
copies of "(redirector)" running, when the redirector was /usr/local/squirm/
bin/squirm. Looking through the code I see squid hardwires "(redirector)" in
the following execlp call:

redirect.c: execlp(command, "(redirector)", NULL);

Is that necessary? Shouldn't it be the name of the executable to stop freaking
out people like me ;-)

[nothing but tough questions from me today! ;-)]
