It seems like this approximates the other proposed behaviour of having
distcc.$SITE.company.com have A records for all the servers, and then
doing locking etc by ip address.  It has the advantage of requiring
less cooperation from the DNS administrators, but the disadvantage of
being a bit more of a special purpose hack.

I'd be very interested to hear from large sites, since i'm not one.
