[distcc] On Style - the hosts file

I have submitted two patches that add options to the host file.  I am
not sure if this is generally an accepted way of configuring things with
distcc.  I followed Dan Kegel's lead by looking at his randomized hosts
code, but I also notice that his code hasn't been accepted into the main
distribution.    I am now looking at implementing creat-locking, instead
of locking, and I would like to know the right way to make this
configurable, so I can see how it performs.


I prefer the hosts file because the hosts file controls the canonical
name all clients use, and the locking mechanism is part of that.
