It's definitely in there; I contributed the module originally.  I
don't understand your second question.  It takes single frames, but it
can do so pretty quickly; using the Polaroid DMC driver in SANE, a
Python server can readily take 20 frames per second, JPEG-encode them,
and pump them out via TCP/IP on a middling Pentium (450 MHz).  That's
not doing any very complicated processing on each frame, though.
