What this means is that you can now see in the ProgLister screen if a
program really will or won't record and you can set overrides and
resolve conflicts from there as well.  I will be updating the
GuideGrid and ProgFinder to support the same in the next few days.

In the mean time, I'd like some suggestions for making the color
highlighting consistent on the various screens, at least for the blue
theme.  Currently, highlighting is done as follows:

                     ViewScheduled   ProgLister   GuideGrid
Conflicting:             Yellow        Yellow       Red BG
Recording:                White         Green       Red BG
Not recording:             Grey         White       Red BG
Not scheduled:              N/A         White      Category

I don't really like the yellow and green used in ProgLister since I'm
a tad color blind and the two are hard to distinguish.  I'm thinking a
light red or magenta might be better for conflicting.
