I think with this patch added, we could move one step closer to having
recordings be put across multiple drives, using symbolic links.  With
some kind of job running every now and again, just move a recording to
a symbolically linked sub directory and then update the DB

This would be good for people like me who would like to add a new
disk, but don't want to enable LVM or RAID.

Mike, is this patch going into SVN?
