Squid-3 will read the same config file, and the cache directory is
compatible so there is indeed an upgrade path. Its not a total rewrite -
its a port of the squid 2.5 C source to C++, but ....

squid 3.0 is not yet 'stable'. Squid 2.5 is still the stable series. And
we (upstream) don't maintain a single source tree - we have one tree for
2.X and one for 3.X. I don't think it makes sense to try and make a
single source package for this. I think you definately want to allow
co-installation though.

After 3.0 is considered stable, you could definately do a 'drop in and
go' approach.
