If you already have the markers (or just prefer to keep working that
way), you can speed up the splitting process.  In the Keybindings
window, under the "Editor" section, assign keys for "Jump Forward to
Mark" and "Jump Backward to Mark".  I use "," for backward and "." for
forward ('cause they're the keys with "<" and ">" on them).  Then you
can move from mark to mark instantly -- just keep hitting the "," and
"s" keys until you're done.  (I think there are default keybindings
for those actions, but they use modifier keys.)
