qcread + qcwebcam allow up to 0.8-0.9 fps for 320x240 color jpegs on
fast enough box, but that's close to the physical limit for transfer
through parallel port using quickcam's interface without their still
unusable for me compression.
P.S. Yes, I know, I should write FAQ part about webcams, programming docs
on qcwebcam, add filters/color-exposure-self-adjustment code to qcread,
and speed up file operations in fhttpd. I hope to do at least some of that
