pyredir 404
pyredir is a flexible but simple redirector for Squid implemented in Python. URLs matching Python regular expressions can be redirected using regular expression substitution, databases of filename-to-url mappings, alternative config files, or child redirectors.

It is primarily useful for redirecting requests to large local FTP archives, but it can also be useful as a top-level redirector that separates and feeds requests to more specialized child redirectors.
