(RADIATOR) Simultaneous Request handling

Generally speaking our authentication method is
really quick, so it would be a performance hamper
if we forked for every request. It's just these
'rare' cases that mess us around - ie. kerberos
server decides to take 2 minutes to return for
some unknown reason.
But squid is not multi-threaded either, though
it can handle a *large* amount of concurrent
requests - nor does it fork.
