Has this gone any further?  I was looking to do the exact same thing,  
but my PHP is weak.

My thoughts where actually  around, being able to have a button next  
to the delete button in the recorded list, to queue a user Job.

I currently have a system in place for encoding a feed for my iPod  
Video, and would appreciate a web interface to kick shows I want into  
the queue.

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.
