Want to have cache server for small ISP

Can we clarify exactly why? My understanding is that varnish is a web
accelerator for a *website*, and in practice it will only cache for a
single domain. It can't be setup to cache for all domains.

I can imagine you can get around this by using a varnish + squid pair, but
the performance would be unacceptable for an ISP. Not to mention that fact
that making varnish highly available and distributed is a lot of work on
its own.

Can anyone on this list recommend a better solution to the original
