Big no-no. Once an exit relay has accepted traffic (through it's exit
policy), it has to carry on with the connection, untampered. Otherwise,
this is BadExit.

Also, having Squid looking at the *content* of the connections is likely
to mean that you now become legally responsible for everything that you
let go through in several jurisdictions I know. Pretty bad idea.
