Beirdo was chatting in #mythtv-users about how he saved a bunch of disk

that does this kind of thing, along with repairing any necessary tables,

If there isn't already something like this in contrib, it would be nice 
to get this one checked in (or even better, have this kind of 
functionality built into myth itself).
