Well, I suppose that makes the scene annoying, but at least the skip 
button allows for an easy end-user runtime re-cut.

The trouble with jarjar is that he's everywhere.  Basically, like having 
http://search.cpan.org/~dha/Semi-Semicolons-0.04/Semicolons.pm be the 
core syntax.

Turns out the optimal technique is to put it in reverse and gun it.
