Proxy question.

We would like to test Jigsaw with our eGranary Digital Library.

The library is a collection of web sites mirrored with permission that is
delivered to schools where there is no Internet or access is costly. 

We would like to run a proxy that would take someone's request,
http://www.foo.org/ and then determine if the www.foo.org is in the
collection. If it is, it would serve from the collection. Otherwise, it
would go to the campuses proxy cache and if the resource was not there they
would be served a page that would give them other options to request the

I'm mainly interested in the possiblity of using Jigsaw to handle the first
part: take a request, see if it's in the eGranaryDL and serve it if it is.

A note about the eGranary: we use HTTrack to collect the web sites and the
site's resources are saved to the filesystem using the path structure as the
user would see it in their browsers address bar.

Could we do this with Jigsaw? If Jigsaw can do this, any suggestions on
where to start?
