Maybe it's time to completely rewrite it. I noticed Austin joking
about the awkward "probably temporary" phrasing, and the idea that we
need to buy new hardware to avoid downtime is a bit dated.

The source is in Subversion, at /trunk/debs/squid/debian/errors. Maybe
if someone proposed some new text on meta.wikimedia.org, I could see
that it gets included in the next Squid update.
