Re: [squid-users] headers.. how to override them - so that it caches the url?

By adding further HTTP violation directives and their implementations..
which we are somewhat reluctant to do as directives for overriding these
is very sensitive: If we add directives for overriding these then it is
highly expected that some poor administrator will begin tweaking these
to artificially increase the hit ratio, and then Squid will be blaimed
when users suddendly start to receive each others private information
like bank accounts and other sensitive information.. You are talking
about overriding MUST sections of the HTTP specification, which
effectively makes the thing doing so not a HTTP application as it no
longer complies with the minimum HTTP requirements.

Seriously, this is best addressed by question why the headers are there
in the first place.
