APT do not work with Squid as a proxy because of pipelining default

I am bothered by <URL: http://bugs.debian.org/565555 >, and the fact
that apt(-get,itude) do not work with Squid as a proxy.  I would very
much like to have apt work out of the box with Squid in Squeeze.  To
fix it one can either change Squid to work with pipelining the way APT
uses, which the Squid maintainer and developers according to the BTS
report is unlikely to implement any time soon, or change the default
setting in apt for Aquire::http::Pipeline-Depth to zero (0).  I've
added a file like this in /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/ to solve it locally:

  Aquire::http::Pipeline-Depth 0;

My question to all of you is simple.  Should the APT default be
changed or Squid be changed?  Should the bug report be reassigned to
apt or stay as a bug with Squid?

Happy hacking,
Petter Reinholdtsen
