Well, I have found and fixed the problems with (a) only the first
commerical getting cut, (b) the cutlist not getting removed, and (c) the
transcoding taking a long time.  (c) was caused by incorrectly detecting
mpeg4 streams before decoding the first frame.  Unfortunately, the fix
for (c) also has uncovered some other problems in the transcoder, which
results in invalid streams.  I hope to have a working patch availaible
tommorow.  Also, I have also mostly rewritten the transcoder polling
thread to work entirely off the DB, and to be smart about using the
cutlist (this should also allow for stopping a currently running
transcoder, and disabling a transcoding once I figure out how to hook it
into the frontend).  All of that part seems to be working well, so the
net result should make transcoding much more intuitive.

Also, since the transcoder (specifically the 'interactive' part) is
obviously not fully functional at the moment, it makes no sense to update
the documentation.  It'd be worse to have the transcoder documented and
broken than undocumented and broken if 0.11 goes out before I get it
