Tool needed to import AVCHD files

New consumer video cameras use AVCHD so we need to make sure that it is
supported. Playback and editing is finally shaping up, but a tool is still
needed to extract these files from video cameras while retaining the
metadata. Currently, users must copy individual .mts/.m2ts files and combine
them together (they are split if larger than 2GB), which does not keep the
metadata. Currently, the only tools available are special proprietary tools
only available for Mac or Windows.

I filed a bug here if anyone is interested:
