Would *you* try this? ccache 4 to 5 times faster compiles?

I wonder if it can cause problems. I typically compile KDevelop a couple
times a day, and don't want to introduce any significant sources of hidden
problems on my end. OTOH, a fresh build can take a very long time.
Just today I build KDevelop and have symptoms I haven't seen for months. It
has to do with the background color of certain strings. Usually the first
string in a tab and any hotkey characters will have their background set to
red and green respectively. That last time it happened, it turned out to be
a KDE library linking problem. I'm now rebuilding KDevelop from a make clean
without the symlinks to ccache.

Actually, I was just poking around in my 100s of installed programs that I
have never used. When I saw the claims, I figured it was worth bringing up.
If distcc is easy to set up, I might be interested. As I've already said,
KDevelop takes a long time to compile, and the whole KDE can take the better
part of a day.
