I find this idea exciting as well. I also think it would be very useful 
to run MSC from distcc without wine on cygwin.

Since you have MSC working under Linux I started getting distcc to play 
nice. I wrote a quick sed script to transform the important settings 
from gcc to cl.exe. I suppose it is a subset of wrapmsvc, with which I 
didn't bother. Instead I took the approach of not translating all gcc 
options to MSC, but rather only -c (/c), -o (/Fo) and -E (/E). The 
script also fixes the temp paths for cygwin.

It now works with distcc for c++ files, and it should be quite easy to 
extend to c files as well. It is still very hackish (and cygwin 
centered), but if anyone's interested I can post it here.

This sounds interesting. Is it availible?
