 Can FFMPEG add support to read an EDL file to cut video files while
 this is something similar to what mencoder does.

 EDL format is very simple, it consists of 3 tab delimited columns

 StartTimeStamp   EndTimeStamp   0

 Basically it gives the start and end time stamps for cutting
 video/skipping video while encoding a file. Each row represents a start
 and end time stamp for cutting/leaving video out of the final conversion.

 It would be of great help instead of trying to cut a video into pieces and
 trying to merge it back together, which is a nightmare!
