my reaction would be to use mplayer to set the start and end points of
the edits into an "edl" list. See the mplayer docs for details.
Then I would use ffmpeg to perform the deletes.
(In practice I use my PVR to do this step, so I have not actually tried
the above.)

What I am now looking for is something to mask the station identifier
blobs that are scattered over the running movies.
