You can already do this with a single squid. These are the statements that
I use to do exactly what you are describing...

http_port 4040 8080

acl noadblock myport 4040

redirector_access deny noadblock
redirector_access allow all

The redirector runs the URL through a set of rules and simply substitutes
known banner ads ith a "Removed by ..." image instead which is stored
locally on our web server.

The users can of course choose between port 8080 and 4040 within their own
