How about
        - upgrading to a supported version of Squid
        - configuring childs to be siblings
        - not configuring parents to be siblings
        - enabling cache digests on all children and two parents
        - enabling miss_access on siblings (for now)
        - disabling ICP among siblings

I leave comments on failover safety to gurus :)
