good, then i like me too :-)
new to me, just i'm learning scons tricks and python
(previous this i thought that maybe you were suggesting something like
that, but i noticed it after my last mail)

well, i remade it (please see the patch attached):

now, if you run it with something like: scons distcc_hosts='host1 host2 host3'
you setup and enable it, then you can run only "scons" and you'll
compiling with this conf

if you want to disable it: scons distcc_hosts=''
(builds again only with g++)

help also works as you said:
scons --help
distcc_hosts: distcc compiler hosts
    actual: host1 host2 host3

(hosts value's are automatically saved in "clam.conf")

that's all
