[mythtv] Schedule conflicts: Lost

How hard would it be to code up a global setting that says something 
along the line of:

- If 2 programs overlap by x minutes or less, record both, missing a 
small portion of one.  x could be a configurable setting, or something 
hardcoded but reasonable, like 5 minutes.
- As for which program should be recorded during the overlap, it could 
be either the program that comes first timewise, or the program with the 
higher priority.  Maybe make the choice between these 2 options 
configurable - I'm not sure if it would be preferable to miss the 
beginning of a show vs the end, or to make sure I get all of the higher 
priority show.
