I've seen commercials here with CC text in them.  Can't cost an advertiser
that much relative to the cost of a commercial and doesn't limit their
audience, so I'm not sure if I would want to rely totally on that if I
were someone.  I could see adding it as an option later.  Right now
the code is setup as a sort of multiple choice for the detection methods,
but maybe in the future when we can do offline scanning then it could
be a group of items that determine whether there's a commercial or not.
