This would be trivial to implement, with some sql like

select title where undeletable='1' order by title ASC and maxepisodes 

I agree that the current method is confusing and like some of the 
suggestions put forward. When I mark some un auto expire then it should 
through out the system

possibly add a list like All programs in the recoding selection screen 
called saved/archive or some thing. so we know they are special.
