I have no personal interest in working on supporting other compilers 
than GCC, but if anyone wants to, please go ahead. But keep in mind that 
to do this acceptably, a lot of refactoring needs to be made since the 
current implementation is a bit hard-wired.

There's also another project, gocache, which has the goal of supporting 
other compilers than GCC: http://sourceforge.net/projects/gocache/

Not likely.

> Q3. When do you intend to release 3.0?

Unfortunately, I have no other answer than "when it's ready". :-) I 
haven't been able to work much on ccache lately, but there's still some 
things I want to do before releasing. There will be at least one more 
prerelease before 3.0.
