Exactly how I understand it, as well.
At 50M, samba-common isn't tiny.
If there is reluctance to have a subpackage for squid alone, maybe a subpackage
which is a superset for all packages wanting approximately the same components ?
Possibly making this subpackage parallel to samba-common, created from the same
srcrpm, with mutual declared conflicts, so the subpackage is only installed if
samba-common isn't, and that those installing samba-common install a single
Both seem better options than an independant samba-squid-helper package, which
would require mutual conflicts with samba-common.
Just some random ideas ...
