Whatever you do with apache each client will still spawn a server process (or 
thread in case of apache2 thread mode) which gives higher memory consumption 
than using squid which serves up to 1024 clients with one process. If you 
recompile you can even get higher, at my daytime job we have recompiled squid 
to be able to serve 4096 clients each. (We are using 10 proxyservers in a 
loadbalanced setup)
