Introducing nix-build-remote, a nix-build wrapper for ad hoc, backgrounded remote builds

This script automates the workflow suggested by @woffs in this thread and implemented by @danbst in this gist. (I believe they each independently discovered the pattern.)

My main motivation is to put forward a proof of concept of what a proper work flow and command line interface for this use case might look like so any feedback or ideas for pushing this concept forward would be appreciated!
