I'll deal with that if I ever encounter a bug. I haven't since the last 
supported release. I'd rather use reliable old software than stuff 
that's constantly changing.

Because it's a pointless waste of time when mencoder can read my DVD 
directly right now.

And I'm sticking to unsupported mencoder which has had excellent EDL 
support for years. I've been using it to edit out commercials before I 
burn TV shows to DVD. I just tap the 'i' key in mplayer when a 
commercial starts and hit it again when the show starts.

I saw the ffmpeg feature request for EDL support months ago. Nothing has 
happened since. That told me how much I support I can expect from ffmpeg
