Thanks for the suggestion.  I already record in MPEG-4 (bttv capture) so 
is there a way to apply the cutlist without recompressing everything or 
should I live with the marginal loss of quality that the possible 
recompression will incur?  I assume I'll have to set up a transcoding 
profile in Myth first before attempting this?
