Yes, I was holding off on them, but not necessarily until merging.

Did you test it?  It doesn't look like it will work to me since the
rsWillRecord path should already be taken.

OK.  I'm not going to include the "offset" progMap entry for now.

See above.

It should use cardid instead of inputid.  It also needs to take into
account whether or not softpadding has already been included.  I say
maximize the softend and then give the rest to softstart.

Should be fixed now.

No one else spoke up so I switched this.

I purposely made separate progMap entries for startoffset and
endoffset so theme designers can split them up if needed.  For
example, it might make sense to display startoffset with starttime and
endoffset with endtime.
