I know that Squid does. Some say Squid covers at least 50% of forward
HTTP proxy installations. I do not know for sure, but would be
surprised if most commercial caches (NetApp, Cisco, Cacheflow, iMimic,
etc.) do not maintain separate client- and server-side connection
pools. AOL probably does that too. Again, I cannot be certain about
commercial implementations (would have to check cache-off results for
a proof). Possible performance gains aside, it simply makes for a
better, more flexible design, I guess.
