There have been a lot of good ideas put forth for this.  I'd like to add my 

If there are multiple storage units, MythTV should run a little one time 
performance test for each storage volume when the drives are idle.  Maybe 
bonnie++ or some such utility.  Preference could be given to the fastest storage 
volumes for HD recordings.

Maybe instead of straight round robin, a recording will go to the storage 
volumes that has the most available free space.

It would also be nice to tell it to balance the recordings amoung the volumes 
when MythTV is idle.  For maintenence purposes it would be good to tell Myth to 
move all the recordings from one volume to the rest in case you need to take 
that volume off line.
