Nice and excellent for a flat network.

On a shared network behind a common firewall, I get this benefit by
using Squid on the linux firewall in transparent mode and then
redirecting all internal port 80 traffic to squid...  Nice, centralized,
and you don't have to edit everyone's apt/sources file.
