Squid only support CARP parents, that is a Squid parenting with a CARP
like array of Squid servers.

Intra-array CARP routing is not supported (where members of a CARP array
direct incoming requests to the correct array member within the same
CARP array).

A typical setup using CARP with Squid is a two layer Squid structure
with N frontend nodes getting requests from users, and N backend nodes
doing the bulk of the caching. The frontend nodes route requests to the
backend nodes using CARP to optimize cache utilization and avoiding
duplicate storage without the need of spending time on query protocols
like ICP or HTCP.
