This will be great ! 
But I don't want to be boring... You had added this option one year ago,
just after a request I did on this list (the same request)...

Ok. But if the criterium is just after a key frame, the next key frame can 
be met 2-3 seconds after. If we know where is the key frame, we may give
a criterium just before it. 
At the end of a scene, there is almost all the time a key frame, because the
new frame is realy different from the previous one. (but if scene fade out/fade in)
Thus, If user found a end of scene at 640Mb (for example), and I give to
mkvmerge 639.5Mb as criterium, it should cut the film where I hope.
Correct ? (Or there is too much suppositions ;-))
