How easy would it be to add support for an adaptive streaming method in myth?

For an overview of what I mean:

Essentially, the server stores the video in 2 second fragments, making
it very easy for the client to search based on time code.
It also makes transcoding to lower rate bitstreams easier because one
is only having to work with 2 seconds of video each time, so the
transcoding can be spread over multiple CPU cores more easily.

DVDs use a similar method to make seeking easier, but they use
something like 0.6 second fragments (called VOBU)

Kind Regards
