mencoder -ovc copy -oac copy <in file> -o <out file> -ss <start

The MPlayer community likes bloat free software, and are generally
willing to add in one six-to-twenty-six second step to get the job
done with the existing tools. There's probably three different ways
to do this (one alternative is to use -ovc frameno, then mplayer that
file with the -dumpaudio option) without having to introduce a whole
new feature into MPlayer.
Just real the manual, and don't be afraid to get creative.
