I think the flag would be best. Here's a scenario when a cutlist exists:

- flag set (indicating manual cutlist)
	- regular cutlist code is executed jumping across cut like it does now.
- flag not set or NULL (indicating automated cutlist)
	- if autocommercialskip is set then skip cut same as manual cutlist mode.
	- autocommercialskip NOT set then skip only if user hits 'Z'.

If the flag is not set then I would think the user should be able to FFWD
into the cut area manually if they wanted if autocommercialskip is not set.
