You can squash all those identical files to the same URL within Squid by
using an URL rewriter. This tells Squid that requests for X1, X2, X3,
X4, .... is all equal to requests for Y.

This requires the rules on identical content to be extracted from the
server and implemented as a search/replace pattern.
