To what end do you propose to store the uncompressed video of commercials?

I propose to store the next 500 megs of /program content/.  If the decoder
is fast enough, it can decode (and discard from memory) a few minutes of
commercials before our position in playback reaches the start of the break.
At the very least, we should be able to reduce the delay when skipping past
