Umm..no :)
I really like to work on one thing at a time, and this is completely
unrelated to the profile changes I'm currently doing.

I 'm not sure I really understand what you want.  If you just want to be
able to hit a key (say 'X') from the PreviouslyRecorded menu to start a
transcode of a given show, that is trivial, and I'll be happy to do it
when I'm done with this stuff.  If you want to be able to just select all
of your Punky Brewster recordings and transcode them all at once, I don't
have a handle on how to implement that, and it doesn't actually interest
me much, as I'd do it through a batch script anyway.
