Note that none of this relates to parallel transactions for the same 
object URL. The older your Squid is the more likely that it will be 
doing multiple parallel fetches, especially as the object size goes up.

That can only be avoided with some changes in the latest Squid and the 
collapsed_forwarding feature.
