Heh. Well, my -eventual- aim with Squid/Cacheboy may make this sort of
stuff possible, but with lua and not perl. Lots of work to do before
that happens though.

Of course, the problem with transparency is doing it -right-, and this
patch is about 1% of the total work required to solve all the problems
so people don't "notice broken stuff"..
