if i understand you correctly, i think you want to specify an external
file for your list of users. (maybe your already doing this?)

acl allowedusers ident "/etc/squid/alloweduserlist"

where the file /etc/squid/alloweduserlist holds a list of usernames on
seperate lines.

then u can create a front end to read/write to/from this file. remember
to make squid re-read its conf files!
