The timestamp is a good index to base the process of cuepoints deletion.
BTW, as cuepoints are defined inside an external file (which could be 
buffered), I think that the deletion should be able to be done the same 

Imagine an automatic cuepoints insertion whith a sed command.
I think that the same should be used to delete some parts of the 

In another hand, the -D and double -DD is an elegant way to do it.

So, Norman, you propose the -y flag for deletion from  file ?
But will the meta or video be static identifiers ?

Best luck.
