I think a counter flag would work just about as well, that's why I
replied. :)  "Who watched program XYZ? the counter says 3."
I think in order for this to be effective, it will need Myth to be
user-aware like the "Make MythTV Multi-User" Summer Of Code project I
put on the list.  Then you could see that 'mom and little Billy watched
Monster Garage, it's safe for dad to delete it because he knows
not-so-little Susie isn't interested in it or maybe because Myth shows
him that she doesn't care (since she has a crush on Mikey from
American Chopper)."
