Randomizing the host list
In environments where the build machines are reasonably homogeneous it make sense to try randomize the distribution of jobs so that machines at the top of the host list don't get swamped with jobs. This patch allows you to request that the distcc client randomize the host list before it looks for a host with an open compile slot by adding the keywork '--randomize' to the hostlist.
