First, you can already do this by creating a custom recording rule.
It's fairly easy to create a simple rule this way by just choosing the
canned clause you want and adding it to the rule.  Editing an existing
rule is more problematic currently due to MythUI's lack of a usable
multiline edit widget.

Second, I plan to add more flexible filtering to normal recording
rules since I've never liked how the dupin and dupmethod fields are
overloaded.  I hope to get this in for 0.25.  Initially, the filters
will be limited to canned choices, but the plan is to eventually make
it extensible.
