Hello, I've subscribed to the mailing list a few month ago, as I wanted 
to contribute to the project.

This is my first post, please be tolerant :-)

I have a question directly related to your proposal : did you ever 
consider the use of SMIL to describe/save a scenelist ? Video and sound 
clip, transitions, effects, almost everything could already be described 
within a SMIL file (well, we would have to examine precisely what 
"almost" means).
