Yeah.  Just one more reason why I liked mythrename.pl when it was
mythlink.pl.  :)  I still don't understand why people feel they needed
to mess with Myth's filenames, but I realize my way of seeing the world
isn't the only way (just the right way ;).

If this were Mythrosoft, we could do like a certain company seems to
have done when they found their browser was "leaking" uncacheable data
to the disk cache--just change the OS (GUI /and/ command-line tools) to
hide the files/directories so that one really has to know what he's
doing to find them.  If we hid all the original files so the user can
only see links... ;)  (Then again, maybe that change to the OS was just
a way of hiding data on the "bad guys'" computers for the NSA to find
and use.)
