[mythtv-users] Proposed scheduler change - feedback please

As some of you probably know, the scheduler is having some big changes 
done to it ATM.  A question has come up on the -dev list and I want to ask 
the opinion of all the users:

In MythTV 0.13 and lower, if 2 different shows of equal priority 
conflicted then you could tell it to always make one override the other 
when the same 2 shows conflicted in the future.  In MythTV 0.14, the 
ability to set new overrides like this was removed although it still pays 
attention to the overrides that were already set up before upgrading.

The proposed scheduler changes are planned to completely remove this 
functionality and go to a purely priority based conflict resolution 
system.  I believe this is a Bad Thing since as far as I can tell, that 
would make the conflict resolution more difficult to control, less 
flexible and less intuitive.  Especially for those of us with only a 
single tuner (and so many more conflicts).

I'd like your opinions on the matter - do we keep this functionality in 
in addition to the priorities (like it is in 0.13) or rip it out 
completely leaving only priorities?
