Have you also read the "delay pools help" thread in the archives over the
past few days? Many of the questions you have were discussed in it.

http://www.squid-cache.org/mail-arch...0404/0620.html

The only real difference between the example in that thread and what you
want to do is how to add users to delay pools. In your case, you will want
to use the url_regex or urlpath_regex acls to control access to the delay
pools rather than the src acl.

Those acl types are discussed in the Access Controls FAQ:
