I'd be happy to help with configgering this.
I'm not a caching expert by any stretch but I don't see how this would
work. Squid would ask the web server if the content has changed, and
unless you're publishing out static pages OG will always return that
it's changed. Otherwise it's gotta do a database hit to see if it's
changed anyway, and on the homepage that means the expensive recent
changed database hit.
