the code doesnt need to be hack - squid.conf has acl's and there are a
number of well maintained lists similar to websense - i dont think they
as comprehensive thought. i know ipf ( under *BSD ) can redirect
requests on a certain port to another ip on another port - i dont rember
if ip chains can - would it not be a solution to redirect requests to
the linux 'proxy port' to the websense thingy or is that not an option ?
