[Image-SIG] Subsampling in Thumbnail Mode for Jpeg files..?

Sorry, I have a couple of questions:
1. When I create a thumbnail with PIL it is extremly fast! Is this speadup
due to the subsampling (using only the DC component) alone ? Or are there
some other tricks ?
2. In thumbnail-Mode - does PIL still read the full jpeg stream from disk
and then only reads the Bytes of the DC component ? Or does PIL directly
read less Bytes from the disk, i.e. only the Bytes of the DC component ?
How does it "know" which Bytes belong to the DC component ?
3. I guess 1/8 is the limit for subsampling since 8x8 blocks are used and
PIL is taking only the DC component is that case ?
4. What tricks is PIL using to speed up Thumbnail creation ?
