Can someone explain the masquerade stuff verses a shell script early in your 
path like this:

exec /usr/bin/ccache /usr/bin/distcc /usr/bin/gcc $*

That seems to work for me. Is this because I have ccache, distcc, and gcc all 
in the same path?

What would masquerade give that the above shell doesn't?
