IIRC, this statement is inaccurate (unfortunately): Reconfiguring Squid
may break client connections that Squid has not started processing yet.
The connections already being processed by Squid are not closed, but the
new/arriving ones may be rejected for a short time period. Such
rejections may affect clients in some environments. This is a bug, so I
hope it will get fixed.

This correction does not affect the rewriter-vs-ACLs comparison, but I
wanted to make it in case that statement is used outside its context.
