To tell the truth I am not sure in the abstract.  It does not seem
very fair or useful for free software authors to put work into
supporting proprietary compilers, but on the other hand I want distcc
to be useful.

The best I can say is that I'm not going to go out of my way to make
supporting other compilers difficult and I will look at any patches on
their merits.
