I don't see the use case here. If you watch the program delayed
enough for the commflagger to do its job, there is no time to watch
something else. It just skips right to the next scene of your program.
It's not just the CPU time that is the issue. The commflagger needs
to analyze start and end points of commercials to determine if it's
actually a commercial and it can't analyze an end point if it doesn't
