-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
I would like to deprecate ICP protocol from a first-class citizen to a
second-class. Swapping it for HTCP as the default peer exchange
protocol for Squid-3.6.
ICP protocol was designed for use in HTTP/1.0 and works well for that.
However Squid and most servers are now HTTP/1.1 software.
ICP is not able to produce accurate results for the increasingly
popular HTTP/1.1 Vary objects. It will also have difficulty with
Store-ID adapted objects where header fields (Vary and others) are
used by the Store-ID helper.
