I use a single mythbackend, and following Chris Pinkham's advice, the patch
works as expected so far.
It autoexpires  livetv programs, programs in the "Deleted" recgroup, then
regular programs respectively.

I'll commit what i got in a couple of weeks and folks with multiple backends
can test it out.
Also  mythweb translations and mythweb templates need to be updated if this
becomes a desirable feature.
I can modify BackendQueryDiskSpace() to show how much space is taken by the
"Deleted" Recgroup but
I'm not sure how to show this for folks with multiple backends.
