+ 3.2 intercept port receiving forward-proxy requests will reject them
due to NAT failure/lies.

+ 3.2 Host header validation *will* reject if forward traffic is
validated as being intercepted.

** you need at minimum to add a http_port line without "intercept" on it
for the Squid icons and configured browsers to fetch from.

Also, on checking the config file there are some minor anoyances which
will be adding extra warnings into your cache.log:

  * the "QUERY" ACL is now deprecated. You should remove it from your
config along with the "no_cache" (obsolete by itself) directive that
uses it.

* the hierarchy_stoplist is also deprecated and causes slightly more
harm than good. Can be removed.

* default refresh pattern is outdated. The current CGI pattern is "
refresh_pattern -i (/cgi-bin/|\?) 0 0% 0 "

* remove localhost ACL re-definition. Using the old definition will
cause existing Squid to not even start. Fix for that has yet to be

* remove localhost ACL re-definition

* remove to_localhost ACL re-definition
