Ewwww!!!  I don't have a better solution, but that doesn't look cool at all.  

I think the better version of your idea however would be
round-robbin'.  First recording, the disk with most space, second
recording, the disk now with most space, and so on.

Dave - the linux virgin who has been dreading buying a new disk
because of having to configure LVM and likes the sound of some of
