for the [star wars + ffmpeg] intersection out there.

I also thank the ffmpeg especially community not just for 8+ years of use at archive.org,
but relatedly, about 3 years ago, 
I did an (effectively) lossless MPEG2 reedit of the star wars anamorphic DVD
to cut it back to the 1977 timeline/version.  
(it uses other open source tools, like mplayer and avidemux, too)

the open A/V community is an amazing Thing!  8-)
