I'm sorry to say the the squid solution did not get merged before the 8.4.0
code freeze and thus won't appear in the 8.4.X series.  It's on my plate to
get this merged for 8.5.X, sooner rather than later.

(If anyone is interested in getting a release with this merged and beta-
testing it, please email me off-list!)

They are not all solving the problem in the same way, and so they have
some concepts in common but each have individual things about them that
differentiate them.

I'm not 100% sure at this point, but at some point I will figure out what
the best contributions are from each and make them part of HTCondor proper.
