This looks very reasonable to me -- I can't think of any easier way to 
implement this.  Minimal impact on existing code..  Going to break the 
mplayer patch, though =)

Hmm.. though.. Had you thought of a new frametype that just says 'skip the 
next X frames'?  That way you should be able to just cut on key-frame 
boundaries, and then just skip up to the real end of the cut automatically 
during playback..  I dunno, though..
