[MPlayer-users] Using ffmpeg or mencoder to edit files with a edit list

My input file is in a raw frame-by-frame format: there's no MPEG
encoding or groups of pictures. Each frame is stored by itself. I'd
like to do frame-exact editing on the file. For example: remove
commercials in an hour long show.
I have an edit list, which is a text file. It consists of a list of start and
end frame for each sequence of frames of the input file that I would
like to include in the output file. Alternatively, I could generate a list
of sequences that I would like to delete from the output file.
This seems like a simple thing to do, but I'm not sure if it's common
enough for it to have been coded into ffmpeg. Is there a way, with
ffmpeg or mencoder, to somehow produce the output file with only
the desired sequences? I didn't see this is in the documentation, but
then I only searched on 'edit' and didn't find what I wanted.
Alternatively, are there other tools, maybe avidemux_cli, that specialize
in this? I don't need a GUI to figure out what the edit cut points are, I only
need to apply them to my file.
