I've been wanting to do something similar, but with a
preload library, kind of like catchsegv uses,
instead of trying to jam the external daemon hook into the toolchain.
You might want to consider the same.
(Hmm,  been thinking about it for three years now, never got around to
it... )

The nice thing about this approach is that users who want to get rid
of the feature can just unset LD_PRELOAD.
