Well, I do need to make it reset the environment to the original state 
once it's done, but other than that, even the protocols are handled 
(I've added a 1.1 and 2.1 protocol, plus a hostspec parser, so that

hostname,env,lzo hostname2,env hostname3,lzo hostname4

will use protocol 2.1 for hostname, 1.1 for hostname2, 2.0 for 
hostname3, 1.0 for hostname). It'd obviously be pretty easy to just 
switch this to a 3.0. Other than that, it works pretty well. At least 
it's possible to build DragonFly with distcc :)
