Apparently, the ticket containing the avidemux cutlist patch  -
http://svn.mythtv.org/trac/ticket/5809 - is now closed as "wontfix".
(Which, in all fairness, Robert has historically stated that he was
going to eventually do.)  There is a reference to "better, cleaner ways
of handling this".  Unless I missed something (which is quite possible)
I'm not sure what any of them are...
