You seem to have forgotten it.

Also, I'm really curious to see how you're gonna implement this without fragmenting the Squid cache.

Proposed patch

Needs XVO header.

Updated patch

Updated patch so it applies cleanly to current trunk.

Per discussion in #wikimedia-tech, using XVO would make this possible, but:
* It would need to be restricted to a very small set of prefs to keep cache fragmentation (which increases exponentially with the number of allowed prefs) at bay
* There is the fear that enabling even a very limited version of anonymous preferences will open the floodgates to using XVO for all kinds of random purposes

I don't think this is a good idea, and operations is pretty radically opposed
to using this on Wikipedia. Closing WONTFIX.
