Not an answer but may help:
I guess for this to work your ISS/LAMP set-up is going to need to be
aware that connections coming from Squid should be logged with an
additional parameter passed with the connection as opposed to actual
source IP. Kind of talks to an non-HTTP or somehow extended
connector. The AJP (special Apache -> Tomcat connector) does the kind
thing i.e. allows client IP address logging in Tomcat but requires
special connector in Apache & Tomcat).
