Ok, let's hope the best.

I'd like to retire it. Squid 2.4 is no longer officially supported by
the squid development team (look for Henrik Nordström's postings on the
squid mailinglists about 2.4 problems). I'll check with the respective
maintainers but I think that all squid24 consumers in the tree will
work with squid 2.5 just as well.

I consider doing a squid-3 port once it gets ready for production use. I
will check this with the squid team beforehand.

Ok, it's for the archives then.
