Indeed, that is basically how it works. Up to this point I have only used
it to emulate various versions of gcc and MSVC, but it shouldn't be hard to
extend to others. The hard part is really to know how to detect a compiler
and how to determine the predefined macros and paths. The passing through
of unknown options is simple, as the wrapper doesn't need to interpret
anything. It's just a proxy after all.
