Config file...

Just been configuring Squid here recently (one for work, and one for a bo
to replace my current setup at home...) and I've started to really notice
how huge the config file has become.. Is it mebbe time we considered the
idea of allowing a secondary config file specifically for ACL's and auth
handling? I mean it's getting to the point where it would be really useful,
not to mention that the file (sample) is disorganised to some extent where
you end up going back over your tracks a few times (mainly with ACL's).

Basically it's just parsing another file really. You could still leave
acl's squid.conf and have no squidacl.conf and things would be fine.
Include statements in the squid.conf file would prolly do the job, and
allows maximum configurability (tho I'd still reccomend that new installs
allow for them).

Ideas? Comments? Good, bad, ugly? Anyone?
