[squid-users] Squid As A Non-Caching Reverse Proxy/Web Accelerator?

I am thinking of solutions for minimizing apache's
memory use on a small memory server in the presence of
several slow clients or long-running http requests
(large downloads)and with about 50% of the requested
pages being dynamic.

I need a reverse proxy server that can buffer output
from apache so that I won't need many active apache
processes to be able to serve slow clients, and I'm
considering squid with caching disabled.

I'd like to know how squid, in reverse proxy
mode,handles a situation where the origin server is
very fast but the client it's serving is slow. Does
it buffer the server's response and allow it to close
the connection quickly and serve other processes? Is
there an architecture document somewhere that _fully_
answers my question?
