[CinCV TNG] MPEG-2 native lossless editing without re-encoding

Cinelerra doesn't 'smart-render' to my knowledge, nor does any Linux
editor using ffmpeg (I'll be glad to be proven wrong). In my
experience GOPChop is old, unmaintained and extremely slow and crashes
a lot. For this I use an old Windows program called Womble MPEG2-VCR
which works great in Wine, but is no longer available, plus to be
honest I've only done MPEG-2 DVD streams with it, I've never tried
something 1440x1080 with it. Anyone with a functional native Linux
solution please speak up :)

 1080i HDV.m2t contains video of long-GOP MPEG-2 compression,
 8-bit 4:2:0and 25 Mb/s data rate that can be loaded in Cinelerra.

 1) I wonder if it is possible to do simple edits (cuts, join, 
 transitions) and save the result as MPEG-2 video with Cinelerra?

 2) Can this be done "native" and lossless without a lossy generation 
 re-encoding of everything, except locally at cuts/transition?

 3. I.e. gopchop is said can do fast, lossless cuts, FCP7+ possibly 
 more. AVID is said to do "smart GOP splicing" for frame accuracy of 
 long GOP MPEG-2.
 Does Cinelerra have some feature like these?
