However, that is exactly what applications like apt-get require:
transfer of one file at a time... And consider the benifits, if it only
did this on Packages and Sources, but nothing else... If implemented in
squid, then the results could be cached at intermediate squid caches,
too. Something that is impossible with rsync.

I always thought though that rproxy, considering it was aimed at being
included in public web servers, would minimize the load on the server.
Perhaps I am mistaken?
