when i was walking through the source, i think that this command expires 
recordings from my list even when the file is not there any more.
(because i had a harddrive crash and i have many recordings in my db 
which are not there any more, but the auto expire doesn't delete them)

but i don't know how to run this command??? is there a menuitem for it 
in the frontend??? can i do it like mythbackend --forcedelete or is it 
there and not used (so that i have to write my own program!)
