An ICAP service library for Python

It offers a mechanism for intercepting and modifying HTTP requests and responses before they reach the HTTP client.

It can be a deceptively difficult protocol to use. This library aims to make it simple.

To get a suitably configured Squid Proxy running use the supplied Vagrantfile.
