If the origin server isn't providing a explicit expiry time, then Squid
uses it's refresh_pattern settings to calculate how long the page can be
considered fresh.

That gets hundreds of our users visiting, and when the page changes our proxy provides them with Stale cache content, we would still like to be able to cache thier contect (it must be saving us at least 1gb/month on this site alone) but automatically make it expire within say 2days.
