There are things I want to add to nuvexport before I add this to 
mythweb.  My goal is to put the full nuvexport UI into mythweb, and set 
nuvexport up to be jobqueue-aware.

As for other jobs, adding checkboxes and a "schedule job" button to the 
recording page, which would then bring you to a page with job details 
would be an ok addition.  My original idea was to do it shopping-cart 
style, so you wouldn't have to show "all" recordings if you wanted to 
pick multiple show titles.

Anyway, it deserves some thought -- definitely more than something 
hacked together.
