Oh, does this mean ccache will return the cached object not matter if it was 
called together with distcc or not? This would be very nice indeed!

Currently it seems to me that ccache caches all objects that are created with 
distcc. This works alright. But of course it returns other objects that have 
been created without distcc, although the are actually the same...
