 * distcc volunteer server.  Accepts and serves requests to compile
 * files.
 * May be run from inetd (default if stdin is a socket), or as a
 * daemon by itself.  
 * distcc has an adequate but perhaps not optimal system for deciding
 * where to send files.  The general principle is that the server
 * should say how many jobs it is willing to accept, rather than the
 * client having to know.  This is probably good in two ways: it
 * allows for people in the future to impose limits on how much work
 * their contributed machine will do, and secondly it seems better to
 * put this information in one place rather than on every client.
