I guess it depends on the size of your site whether you feel that caching
needs its own dedicated hardware, or whether it can go onto another box
that's already doing other *nix-based tasks (I'm not advocating combining it
with m0n0wall, just another *nix box).

I'd love to see WCCP support in m0n0 itself so squid on a separate machine
can tell m0n0 of its existence and provide transparent proxying.
