I also use --enable-async-io --enable-icmp --enable-cachemgr-hostname=x and
I would hope the former two aren't experimental (ICMP has been in a long
time, and I thought async I/O was meant to be one of the big features of
squid 2).

In fact, why isn't --enable-icmp on by default, and just controlled from
squid.conf instead?

And why isn't async I/O enabled by default for all supported platforms
(resulting from an autoconf test)?
