Making cuts optional

1) Whenever I run Comskip, I always want to produce Videoredo3 vprj files. This works well, but the cuts identified by Comskip are not only marked but also "executed". By this I don't mean the video is in any way altered, but the cuts are ready to be applied when I next save the video in Videoredo. Since I never apply Comskip cuts automatically, it would be useful to have an option in Comskip, either to do what it does now, or simply to mark the cuts instead of marking AND implementing them. I wonder how many of us blindly accept Comskip cuts wirhout validating and editing them first.

2) I have tried including logos in Comskip's detection methods but find there are too many cut marks produced. Using a detection method of 5 produces far fewer cut marks, but the blocks marked as ads always start late and end early. It would be good to be able to specify before and after offset values (preferably in increments of of tenth of a second) to be applied to all marked cuts to mitigate this.
