I think Paul Gardiner has been an advocate of piping with mythtranscode. 
  And I believe the current MythArchive pal-dvd/ntsc-dvd profiles 
(without copyts?) have nav packets.

While I understand the wish to remove dependencies I wouldn't want to 
abandon ProjectX.  Over the several years that I have been using it (and 
my workflow uses it twice, doing the cuts in mythDVBcut) the failure 
rate has been very, very small.  Before that I would get occasional 
failures, probably from recordings with minor faults, and there seemed 
to be no way to recover. Building up the same level of confidence in a 
new scheme would be a long process that I have no real wish to start. 
As far as I'm concerned, it ain't broke...
