 	Doesn't seem like it would be all that difficult.  In the interim, 
I think it'd be easier to do a 2-step process... convert a myth cutlist to 
a "normal" cutlist, then import it into gopdit.  I'm not really excited 
about requiring gopdit to use the database... more integration means more 
house of cards..... keep it simple.

 	I also do all of my "processing" offline.  My mythbox is at home, 
un-networked, and no burners or much HD space.  I bring .nuv/.sql files 
into school where my real machine is to process/burn, so reading .sql 
files directly is a less integrated approach.

 	Of course, once the functionality is rolled into MythTV, it's a 
nonissue.  Basically, if this could be done well, a "lossless transcode" 
right from MythTV would actually *delete* the original file.  Then the 
resulting .nuv would already be ready to roll.
