[squid-users] Refresh ACL list only

Hello all,

Does anyone know of a way to reload a single ACL list? I have a very
complicated and large config file that takes around 30 seconds to reload
when I run the (squid3 -k reconfigure) command. I have several ACL lists
that need to be updated throughout the day and it would be nice if I could
only reload those ACL lists and not the entire config. Its problematic
because while its reloading, the server is effectively down and disrupts
Internet access for the rest of the users. Below is a small sample of the
lists that will be updated. If I could add a TTL to the lists so squid
would reload them periodically without a full reconfigure would be ideal.

acl GLOBAL-WHITELIST dstdomain "/etc/squid3/whitelists/GLOBAL-WHITELIST"
acl DEV-WHITELIST dstdomain "/etc/squid3/whitelists/DEV-WHITELIST"
acl SALES-WHITELIST dstdomain "/etc/squid3/whitelists/SALES-WHITELIST"
