We weren't aware of Polipo.  Interesting project, but it appears to  
be more of an
intellectual curiosity than a production-ready forward proxy.   Has  
anybody on
the list given it a good testing ?

No real performance testing is reported.  The quick and dirty results  
shown on
their web site show Squid performing significantly better when there  
are more
than two clients hitting the cache.   There is no discussion of the  
mem/disk ratio
required (one of Squid's big problems).
