Of course not the entire I-Frame :-), the advantage of the checksum (if it is
_not_ CRC checksum but a MD5-fingerprint is it certaincy, but it' random and
not compressable and probably slow to use.
On the other side, using some DCT-coefficients might make it not as "sharp"
and allows to use IMHO faster code for the library (e.g. huffman?), however
it makes the frame-scanner slower on the other side...
Finally - we can upload/download such libraries via internet and share it
among us for later use!
To make the library not ever-growing, i would implement a "usage" counter,
which automatically removes I-Frames from lib if they are no longer (or some
time) not used at all.
