"Local Cache" at *our* site, means all users proxy through Squid on the 
border host.  "L" in LAN means Local.  Present behavior of \ beats on the 
inner bandwidth, Squid gives them back the same info... a lot.

The variables that make lynx do proper proxy requests are preset for our 
users in the global profile.  This prevents end-users from screwing 
something up...

I can tell that *your* definition of "Local Cache" means "each user has 
their very own copy running under their own uid".  We're not doing that.  
At most academic/library sites I can't imagine end-users being able to
set up these things, or the admins wanting to spare limited resource
on end-users like that anyway.  And I still haven't seen you put URLs 
where your mouth is for these caches on non-UNIX systems.
