Cool. When you get something you're reasonably happy with send me a 
blurb and I'll post a link on theora.org.

Christian Schaller <christian at fluendo.com> is the one to talk to. 
'Uraeus' on irc. Note that for bigger controls I'd still suggest
being able to talk to cortado from javascript. Then you can easily
make things look however you want through external scripting. But
lots of other things would also be nice.

There's nothing theora-specific, aside from Andy Wingo's clip trimmer[1]
and nothing quite like avidemux either.

For general editing the best thing is to use a general tool and then 
either export to theora, or export to a high bitrate master (like dv)
and run that through ffmpeg2theora.

Free software video editors are cinelarra[2], kino[3], pitivi[3], and 
diva[4], in order of rough age and maturity. They all have theora export
