Specific format is Ogg Theora - and I'd prefer not to have to reencode it, edit it, and the rereencode it back again.
Does someone else know better and can indicate a usable, functional package for Linux?
Ogg Theora isn't a very good format to use for editing.
To paraphrase Obi-Wan Kanobi:
Use the source, Luke - use the source!
Or any format it can be converted to losslessly.
Then convert to the presentation format(s) after editing.
Even if an editor doesn't specifically support Theora as input, you might (depending on the design of the editor) be able to pipe the input through ffmpeg to convert.
