The new code will work much better for this then.  The new code doesn't
need to detect individual commercials, it should be able to detect actual
commercial breaks based upon whether the logo is present, high rates of
scene change, etc..

It probably would.  The changes are mainly in commercial_skip.cpp and
commercial_skip.h with one minor change in NuppelVideoPlayer.cpp that I
don't think I really need and will probably get rid of before committing.
Dropping in the commercial_skip.* files would be a simple thing to do.
I'll try to post a patch here for 0.16 when I get the changes in CVS.
