Feature Request: When using multiple webcams, a option to limit access to 1 a time

Description

I've 3 cheap webcam, on a usb 2 hub. (Linux slackware 10.2). Ive used 3 motion threads conf.

Each one works good. But if I use motion to check all, some webcam images are trashed perhaps for bandwith collision. I've tried to set up a simple webcam server, and if I access to one webcam a time they works good.

I've tried also to use the "minimum_frame_time" option and seems to works but I have tu use for one a minimum_frame_time 6, the other 5, the orther 7 ora bigger to prevent timeoverlap while accessing usbbus.

I thinks should be possible and easy to implemente an option that limit access to webcam to one each time, and then follow to next. a sort of serialization ...

Thanks! I'm tring now to move motion to get frames via cgi-bin wecam so I can limit it, but seems not so good...
