Well, if avidemux2 ever starts working entirely from the command line, I 
understand that it's fairly easy to use it to import a cutlist, and then 
export a "cut" version without reencoding.

I'll be getting a pvr-250 type card soon, so will be inclined to add a 
wrapper utility to go along with nuvexport.  Although I'm still hoping 
that mythtranscode will eventually support this ability natively (what 
ever happened to that?  I thought that it was nearing completion, and 
then never heard another word).
