Yes, thanks. Is it Open Source? No, sadly, not, and as it's work stuff I don't really
feel I can produce an out-of-hours skunkworks version with a clear conscience.

Getting it to play nicely with proxies and other application-layer devices which make
up a modern HTTP infrastructure is harder than it looks - some of the commerical
products do it better than others but a decent OSS solution which would be useful
to the enterprise would need to be very well tested across a wide range of devices
it would encounter in the wild - just testing against squid is *not* good enough.
