Support cut entities in screening room

Screening Room has limited support for seeing versions in context, but it relies on the (deprecated?) sg_cut_order field on shots. Not everything in a cut has a shot (e.g. shots with no vfx).

For what it's worth, this is the workflow we'd like to implent:

1. Receive cut from editorial

2. Chop up into discrete shots in editing software (Nuke Studio is our current choice)

3. Export to Shotgun (create a version for each item in timeline, automatically link to shots that exist) as a cut ("cut_v001")

4. In RV, view some version. I want to tell screening room to view this version in context of cut_v001. This would pop up a new RV/screening room, with the cut shown in the browser pane. (similar behaviour to current "View Version and Neighbouring Shots").

Viewing a cut in RV would be more like viewing a sequence than viewing a playlist, i.e. it would have a vertical component (different versions) as well as the horizontal (cut order).

    Agree, it would be fantastic to have this feature. 

    To avoid setting up shots in shotgun, you could use in and out points based on an edl type list - which would relate to a published set of frames, at sequence level.
