slow/high latency hosts as it will slow the whole lot down). However, I
might try again sometime using pump mode which wasn't available at the
distcc is designed for a local network - so security is a real issue.
There are some security related settings in the config file, but I would
still be wary of using it "naked" and not via an encrypted link.
