I think the trick is to create a mechanism for referring to a specific
instance of a program, by an identifier which will be persistent across
mythfilldatabase runs.  Then, a recordoverride table becomes pretty
straightforward to implement.

Do you think chanid/starttime/endtime/title would be a reasonable key?  Or
is there a better way?
