Thanks Andy for your response.

Nope. I am aware of them (Continuous integration by Martin Fowler and the
Cruise Control software). I am specifically interested in building the
system _before_ the commit is accepted.

We use parallel builds and the compile time is about 1 minute. The total
time to run the regressions is about 20 seconds. We intend to further
reduce the time using a small cluster of build servers.

Further, we plan to make large development efforts on separate branches,
which _won't_ have the pre-commit hook. Only the trunk would have the hook
and those commits should be far fewer.
