This is very a abnormal requirement, so there is no easy way built into

There are two options available to you.

  * You can write an ACL test for Squid-3 very easily and do a local
Squid build to use it.
   - gain in processing speed, lose in time creating and managing the
ACL patch.

* You can write an script to plug into the external_acl_type interface
for Squid ACLs.
  - gain in creation time, lose in processing speed.

Are you able to explain why the list is in SHA1 in the first place?
(just to satisfy my curiosity about this).
