Hehe, yes, my script is a glorious hack, isn't it? :) I make no claim that it
is elegant, but it does get the job done. And with the latest patch that was
applied at about 3:00AM EDT, it no longer shows the hideous avidemux screen
when using curses.

Well, avidemux2 is GPL software, I don't think there's anything preventing
someone from using their code in mythtv. I don't really want to be doing it
personally, as avidemux uses gtk and myth qt, and I don't do either on a
regular basis :)
It would be nice to have a cleaner way to do this though. tcmplex doesn't
cut it for me, BTW. It won't renumber PTS as far as I can tell.
