 	I use 'qdvdauthor' to make quickie menus.  It's not too bad and 
uses dvdauthor to actually create the DVD.  You can even put chapter 
points in the tracks pretty simply as well.  I automatically generate 
chapter points every 5 minutes of an hour show.

 	I've already manually done it.  I took a cutlist out of MythTV's 
exported .sql file, and put it in the .RTV format that gopdit liked.  I 
think with a quick sed/awk of the .sql file, it could be easily converted 
into something directly importable to gopdit.
