Varnish compiles ACL's into optimized C-code (you can see this if
you use the -C option), and 800 entries should not be a problem
at all.

If your system uses the GCC compiler, compilation will take longer
time as the length of your ACLs grow, but 800 entries shouldn't be
an issue at all.

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
