[cc'd to list]

Alternatively, distcc could just *always* generate the appropriate -x
option depending on the input filename.   -x is supported since gcc
2.95 at least.

Doing so would remove the need for the server to set the extension of
the temporary filename.  That would be quite nice, because in the long
term I would like to move gcc-specific heuristics out of the server
into only the client.

Doing so would make distcc explicitly depend on gcc and similar
compilers, but in truth it is close to doing so already, and it would
be possible to add modes for other compilers.
