	And is why I would prefer not to add extra "multiple disk"
code to the backend, and to have an external script or program
(mythculldisks? mythdecimatedisks :-) to do this soft of thing.
(move to extra local/Samba/NFS partition, create symlinks, et c)

	To my way of thinking, mythbackend should only be concerned
with arbitrating access to the cards, making and streaming recordings.
Simple or complex disk management would be better off elsewhere.
