I'm almost reluctant to mention this, but... You might want to take a
look at Phil Karn's "httproute" <URL:>:

	This package contains a daemon, written as a Perl script plus
	configuration file, that provides a simple HTTP router, banner
	advertisement blanker, cache and cookie cutter. You configure
	your web browser to use it as a web proxy. 

One of my play projects that I never got around to was to recreate the
same functionality in PLT Scheme, though I would now probably use CMUCL.
[Not CLISP, since one needs to handle multiple threads simultaneously
to keep performance up.]
