as a squid user, I'd like to say that squid is a quite common package
and upgrading from squid2 to squid3 is not always braindeadly easy (or
maybe: has not always been), so I can imagine sitation where I would 
have been unhappy with this… so in the sense of *long term* support of
wheezy I think I would applaud continued support for squid(2) if feasable.

It's just better of one can keep things running as they are for some more
