Yes, I needed that for my district-wide squid server as well. Happily, 
it works fine for me once you apply the patches.

I run a Debian squidbox, so I had to apply Eric's patch manualy then 
make my own .deb file. Took some hair pulling, but it's happy now.

Basicaly, it is SquidGuard looking at the URL like normal, and if it 
matches your conditions, it redirects. What's special about his patch is 
that the redirection can be dynamic, thus you can just take the current 
requested URL and put "&safemode=active" at the end of it... forcing 
google to be in safemode.

Look in the archives of the list for where he put his patch... I can't 
remeber off the top of my head. If you're running Debian, I might still 
have the .deb... Sm:)e.
