Sure, I'd be glad to.

On a somewhat related note, I have been meaning to ask you about the
"/MAX" syntax since I was thinking about helping to document it.
However, I'd need to know if you've yet decided to keep the syntax or
not, if you'd like to me submit such a patch (or prefer to do it
yourself), and what the preferred syntax is for combining it with a

I had thought that the full syntax would be HOST:PORT/MAX (since I think
of the HOST:PORT as a set that specifies a unique distcc resource).
However, it appears that the parser expects this to be HOST/MAX:PORT.
Do you have a preference for either format?  I think that the former is
slightly better, and would be glad to tweak the code to accept it.
