[distcc] Server-side caching in distcc

I thought about load balancing a bunch,
but for some reason I have a feeling that
server-side caching is going to be a bigger win.
Wouldn't it be nice if distcc had ccache built
in, with a perfectly shared cache?

I'm going to experiment with a scheme that
will ensure that all compile jobs that
will produce identical bits always go to the
same server; that will increase the hit rate.
I'm kind of surprised nobody's tried this before (have they?)
