Less and less would be my estimate. How much video is cached ? How

If you asked Akamai, Limelight and friends, they might tell you that  
100% of important video is cached. And viewed from some angles, every  
peer who receives a block of data and offers to serve it to others is  
caching that block of data for the benefit of other peers.


        aha... so taking a peek at my nearby BT tracker & client, it seems
        that there is abt 12% "duplicate" traffic.  

        wildextrapolation -- poor caching design/flaky networks have a 10-15%
        extra traffic load, "just to make sure".

        i'd guess that 10% of a femto (or is it the other way) byte of traffic
        relates to real money.
