 I don't recall if it's built in into distcc (I'm guessing not), but you can 
manually change the priority of any process with "nice" (read documentation 
about it, you don't want to nice too far :) ).
 I can't answer your other questions right now since I don't have distcc at 
hand and I don't trust my memory.
