[FFmpeg-user] encoding multiple, discrete segments at once, into one continuous file

 Is it possible to get ffmpeg to encode multiple discrete segments, for one 
continuous resulting file?
something semantically (but not syntactically, obviously) equivalent to:
{ -ss <start1> -t <duration1> }, {-ss <start2>  -t <duration2> }, { etc... 
If this doesn't exist, it seems the addition of this feature might be worth 
the effort
(one benefit is to cut out commercials or unwanted home-video scenes)
Or maybe the inverse option?  Instead of what to include, an option to 
exclude or skip segments:
ffmpeg -i blah.mpg -exclude_start 0:43:23 -t 0:00:20 [ -exclude_start 
1:04:31 -t 0:00:15, etc. ]
