The problem with this approach is that is slow (the redirectors are
surely slower than a good DNS cache - like djbdns), complicated (you
have to maintain the redirect rules *besides* the search path in
resolv.conf) and may have odd consequences with naive or buggy clients
that do not swallow redirects.
Squid should support DNS search path out-of-the-box, like any other
software does.
