I strongly doubt that you heard about pbulk over the last few years :-)
But the idea of running parallel builds with distcc is certainly not
new. As far pbulk is concerned, it boils down to getting the distcc
build and dependency correct. The rest is pretty much duplicating the
client node. I have run builds with multiple machines, but so far none
with distcc.
