That was me.

Lots of people have taken a lot of time to make a very useful wiki.  
You should use it.

When you set a cutpoint, you're always either cutting before or after  
the point. So to set two points and cut between them, set the first  
one to cut after this point, then set the second one to cut before  
this point. Not sure what more you would need.
