Samba-common is the right package for this. I see no need to have a squid-
specific subpackage (and then samba-apache, samba-freeradius, with the same
content, or all virtual packages just pulling samba-common).
Feel free to mess up your squid package by adding suggests on samba-common,
but since installing the right package is trivially solved by the admin and is
a small portion of the work required, I would personally prefer not to
increase the default footprint of any installation that pulls in squid.
