That's a tough one. I looked at a couple of command line utilities,
thinking you could wildcard them, but they required start and end times,
which would only work if you had all the same length (or at least close)

I finally ran across this one, you can try it out and see if it's worth
the 20 bux to you in saved time.

I'll continue to use MP3DirectCut because I feel the need (even after an
auto cue) to move the breakpoints between sentences (or at least words).
I like to have legitimate stopping points. :)
