I think any solution would be manual. It's just a question of how it's handled. Either load the audio into an audio editor and split that way, or create a custom CUE file and split using that with a script.

It's now occurred to me that another use for this (either method) is to split the silence from the start of the so-called-"hidden" tracks at the end of a disk - or collapse multiple short silent tracks into one. Either way, the result is one track of silence to ignore, rather than either unavoidable lengthy initial silence, or multiple unwieldy tracks.
