When I modify it later this week or next to have the master do most
of the work, then I'll probably have --printexpire list each
backend separately if they aren't on the same nfs directory as the
master.  I'm gonna think about how to work that out some more before
starting coding on it though.

I think the average user with Auto-Expire turned on by default 
using oldest-first could get by without ever going into the
advanced screen.

I do like the idea of putting a setting in for "Use Advanced
Recording Options screen by default".

OK, in CVS now.  Default is OFF.  It's in the TV/General setup screen.
