In a cost/benefit tradeoff, delivering videos like pizza (including 30
minutes or free) is probably really a more efficient way to go than
wrapping them into packets (or cells). At least for the time being.
Just need a good way to pick'em up next day, a problem resolved for
pizza for ages already as well (translation into something volatile
after use).
