Well, that's neither here nor there - if it's not against the GPL, then why
should people be stopped from changing the *whole* error template, including
the Squid name/version number? If the original authors don't want it to
happen then it should be prohibited upfront. (Playing devil's advocate here.)

In any case, I've already said that it makes logical sense for the
name/version to be in there somewhere anyway - it'd be nice if Squid didn't
force the location/style of it, though (maybe replace some tokens in the
error page? I dunno .. have to go look at the 2.x package again).
