Comment(by sphery <mtdean at thirdcontact.com>):

 Rather than rename the "Set Priorities" screen--that was designed
 explicitly for setting priorities of recording rules and really only
 displays priority-related information about the rules--it makes more sense
 to add a screen that allows for managing recording rules while presenting
 information that makes it easier to decide which rules to edit/cancel.

 The attached patch, mythtv-5759-add_support_for_manage_rules.patch , adds
 a new screen "Manage Recording Rules" by modifying
 programrecpriorities.{h,cpp} to allow showing any of many fields that
 previously could not be displayed on the "Set Priorities" screen.  It also
 adds a new window definition to default{,-wide}/schedule-ui.xml to show a
 less-priority-centric view of the recording rules with useful information
 for deciding which to edit.

 I edited the default and classic menu themes to include the new screen
 (with the button label "Recording Rules"), but did not add the screen to
 the DVR menu layout as it didn't really fit well in any of the menus and
 anyone who's using the DVR theme probably already realizes that he/sh can
 use the Set Priorities screen to see a list of all recording rules so
 he/she can jump to the scheduled recording editor to edit/cancel the rule.
 I also moved the "Set Priorities" menu item to the end of the "Manage
 Recordings" menu and placed "Recording Rules" second on the screen (where
 "Set Priorities" was) as it seems a more commonly-useful screen.

 There's currently no watermark image for "Recording Rules".

 Also, because all of the same functionality and information is available
 through both screens, menu themers can choose whether to include both
 windows or just one in their themes.  The only difference between the two
 screens is which window is displayed (i.e. which information is presented
 to the user).

 If there are other fields that should be made available on the Manage
 Recording Rules screen, please let me know and I'll add them.
