Additional Squid daemons will put additional memory and processor
load on your machine, ie. make it slower. Therefore if you don't
actually need them you'll be better off staying with a single Squid.
But they can be handy for certain things. You can for example offer
different access/redirector policies (like with/without banner ads)
on different proxy ports by running a separate Squid on each of them.
That way you can defuse the conflict between the "out with banner ads"
and "no censorship" fractions among your users, by letting everybody
choose themselves whether they want the banners or not.
