I wasn't aware of this...

I've considered offering a distributed compilation service on the farm, but
there are a number of problems, like the fact that make is arguably
considerably less than secure, since you could conceivably upload the code
for a malicious program, make it, and then in the same makefile launch it!!

I have some ideas on how to get around this, but I don't think they'll get
any use for a *very long* time, if ever.
