Is the below ever going to be included in m0n0wall? I think it would be a great feature to have. Web
caching with a captive portal on a public access point would make a great combination. With WCCP
there would be no trick rules to put in to use a squid server.

"For many environments, WCCP (Web Cache Coordination Protocol) is the preferred method of performing
interception caching. WCCP provides routing of web traffic from the router to the web cache,
automatic failure detection and failover, as well as the ability to efficiently load balance among
multiple web caches. Most ISP-class routers will feature WCCP, as do some enterprise and smaller
Cisco routers. Contact your router vendor if you are unsure of whether WCCP is provided by your
router."
