Well, if avidemux2 ever starts working entirely from the command line, I
understand that it's fairly easy to use it to import a cutlist, and then
export a "cut" version without reencoding.
I'll be getting a pvr-250 type card soon, so will be inclined to add a
wrapper utility to go along with nuvexport. Although I'm still hoping
that mythtranscode will eventually support this ability natively (what
ever happened to that? I thought that it was nearing completion, and
then never heard another word).
