The new ability to reactivate recordings should make this easier to
handle.  If the slave should be doing something when it connects the
master can reactivate the recording and have the slave record the
remaining part of the program.  That still leaves some boundary cases
to consider, though.  How and how soon does the master know when a
slave goes away abnormally?  Should partial recordings be counted when
checking for duplicates?

I think the slaves can already do that.  The master just has to ask.
