As someone who moved from IPCop to m0n0wall a few years ago, I'd strongly advise against going back.

Your best bet might be to use a bog-standard linux box in a separate subnet running squid. Set up
rules to push everything on port 80 from the three LANs through the squid box and you should achieve
the transparent caching you desire. It's been a good 4 or 5 years since I last worked with squid,
but I do remember it working fairly successfully.
