small proxy

Is there any small proxy that is supervision-friendly?

My needs are modest: configure browser to use a port in 127..0.0.1
where a nice proxy would be listening; the proxy should redirect
some connections (based on URL) to a previously established ssh
tunnel, all other connections should pass untouched.

Basically, tinyproxy does this. What it does not do is sensible
logging. It seems to be brain damaged in this departement: it either
logs to syslog or to a file, which it insists in opening. /dev/stderr
does not work (it says that file has changed). It also has a -d flag,
that prevents backgrounding (and wtf should it go to background, to
begin with??) but does nothing at all regarding logs.

Just hoping someone has written some intelligent alternative...
