Chris, you could tie a squid web proxy together with any of the filters
that can run in conjunction with squid. The squid website, last time I
looked, had a nice list of various filters with a vague description of
their goals, where to find them, etc.
Warning: squid takes a fair amount of memory and disk. I think it is
worth it. Be sure to use a firewall solution of some sort (ipchains,
iptables, ipf, pf, dedicated machine, whatever) to ensure that
connections to your squid proxy come only from hosts you trust. (In case
you are wondering, no, I wouldn't rely on the ACLs alone. :)
