Sorry if this question has already been asked before and I missed.  My
purpose for Squid on m0n0wall is more for access control than caching,
in fact I have caching completely disabled.  I'm planning on running it
on a Soekris net4501.  In testing I've had to increase the m0n0wall
footprint to about 15MB, but I think that number will go down as I strip
down Squid.

oh boy, here we go again :)

I think it's fairly safe to say that no one else is working on this 
right now. There have been several discussions about adding additional 
functions (including squid, I believe) to m0n0wall. Most are met with 
stiff resistance, since Manuel (and others) feels very strongly that a 
firewall is a firewall is a firewall. Not to mention that m0n0wall is 
designed to run on an embedded device.

That's not to say that no one will be interested if you go through with 
it. There are lots of us running on generic PCs with plenty of memory 
and disk space who would love to test this for you.

have fun
