The mission,

Change 'Program Rankings'  to 'Recording Priorities'.  Why?  Because
it is a much more accurate description of what you are actually
doing, and it opens up Program Rankings so that it can be used for
something else.  

Gui Changes:

Schedule Recordings | Set Program Rankings -> Set Recording Priorities
Set Program Rankings screen:
  all Rank instances change to something more reasonable  :)

Advanced Recording Options screen for a program:
  Rank -> Recording Priority

Setup | TV Settings | Rankings -> Recording Priorities
  all Rank instances change to something more reasonable  :)

Technically, the gui changes are all I'd need to do to clear up the
name so it could be used, but that would only be half doing it.

So, the following behind the scenes changes will also need to be made.

database tables:
  channel, record     have a 'rank' column.  that will change to a better name

All references to this column in the code will need to change.

files in programs/mythfrontend,
rank_channels.h rankchannels.cpp rankprograms.h rankprograms.cpp

will need to change names.  This will cause changes in the appropriate
.pro files.  In addition, classes within those files will also change

I'm going to start on these changes later today.  If anyone has issues,
speak now or forever hold your peace.
