I don't see why you would have to even care about this modified handling of marks.
This is all taken care for in cCuttingThread::Action(), and cCuttingThread::ProcessSequence()
only has to make sure the data from BeginIndex to EndIndex-1 goes into the edited version.
Just take a short look at the new code. I'm sure  you'll see how the fromMarks handling
is now completely separated from the actual data handling.

Whatever suits you best. I was just trying to give some pointers.
