	Hmmm. OK, includes was a bad word. Change to:
"my thinking ... keeps the current frame"

	Agreed. We could add "(keeps this frame)" or
"(deletes this frame) in the editing popup messages,
but that would look rather ugly.

	There are also other, small, issues.

1) The editor lets you delete before the first frame,
    and after the last frame. Which seems to indicate
    the generated cutlist _does_ remove the current frame?

2) In the editor, the first frame is 0:00:00.1
    and this sequence (in PAL land) goes up 0.24
    before incrementing the seconds.
    So the first second has 24 frames, not 25?
    Assume NTSC recordings go up to 0.29?

	This may all be related to the cutlist format change
(from test field in recorded, to records in recordedmarkup)
or it may have always been vaguely defined.

	Not quite sure where to go from here.
