The contrib/mythrename.pl script already does allow the creation of 
directories.  I use it all the time with the format string 
'%T/%Y%m%d-%H%i-%eH%ei-%S' (which creates directories according to the 
title of the show and links within that are organized by recording time).

As a matter of fact, I use a little script that calls mythrename.pl 
multiple times--each time creating a new directory of links using 
different formats (which means they're sorted differently)--giving me 
several "views" of my recordings.

The script is attached and is relatively self-explanatory.
