What might be *really* cool would be to subtract a configurable amount 
from the priority when rerecording an expired show.  That way it would 
become a low priority recording and wouldn't interfere with anything you 
might be more interested in recording.

I have limits set up on all the stuff that I might not watch all episodes 
of so it'll automatically nuke things I never got around to watching.  
Anything I do watch gets manually deleted immediately.  Usually seems to 
keep about 100 gig of shows on the drive (never actually seems to hit the 
disk-space limit)
