I tried it[1] too, but ended up giving it up, opting to spend a few
hours getting eAccelerator to compile, rather than spend any more weeks
hacking on Squid. I checked the headers, but no matter what I did,
anything served from PHP would MISS the cache.

The lack of an intuitive Squid configuration format didn't help, either.
