Wearing my upstream hat, I'd like to see squid3 packages that *do not*
conflict or replace squid packages in a release.

Squid3 has many features that are simply not available to squid 2.5, and
I think parallel installs are really quite reasonable. After we release,
there will probably be people that want to stay with 2.5 for a while
anyway, and having a transition period is not harmful IMO.

Squid itself supports parallel installs very well.
