Great feature idea!!

But wouldn't it be even better if the recordings data followed the file
somehow, almost like a tag, but an extra file, so all formats is
supported (*.mythinfo). And within that file where the details of the
recording that where exported. Although this would be something more
elaborate than what you are implying, but would be more feature-full, if
one could specify multiple *archive* locations that would be searched
after the main location...
