Yes.  At the time I didn't think it was necessary to create a "recordinggroup"
table to just relate a recgroup text string to a recgroupid for use in
the record and recorded tables.  The code was much simpler to just make it
a text field in both of those tables and allow the user to "create" and "remove"
groups just by changing the recgroup field in those tables.  I also was lazy
and didn't want to have to create a screen to add/remove/edit recording
groups. :)
