Why go to trouble with accounting in squid? Just account on the 
 "insode" interfaces, compare with the totals of "outside" and you're 
 set. ipac-ng can do this, only the png-generation is severely broken 
 at the moment (I'm debugging it right now).

Just account on the same layer everywhere and you can split the bill 
 from the ISP in the proper %s.
