Support for EDL cutting while encoding videos

Can FFMPEG add support to read an EDL file to cut video files while encoding?
this is something similar to what mencoder does.
EDL format is very simple, it consists of 3 tab delimited columns
StartTimeStamp EndTimeStamp 0
Basically it gives the start and end time stamps for cutting video/skipping video while encoding a file. Each row represents a start and end time stamp for cutting/leaving video out of the final conversion.
It would be of great help instead of trying to cut a video into pieces and trying to merge it back together, which is a nightmare!

Update on the EDL format:
There are 3 parameters in a line:
STS ETS 0/1
STS - Start Time Stamp
ETS - End Time Stamp
The 0/1 in translated like:
0 - Cut the video between the start and end time stamp
1 - Keep the video between the start and end time stamp
The EDL file cannot contain a combination of 0's and 1's, rather it's either all 0's or all 1's
