I have plans to add this sort of thing in on the recording detail page 
(which will integrate with nuvexport).

Part of the problem with ALL of this is that I'm running out of screen 
real estate to put all of these commands.  A large (or just vocal) 
percentage of the user base has asked me not to require javascript in 
mythweb, which means I can't do cool things like popup menus for 
commands, etc.  And since I personally don't like popup windows for 
additional things like "which type of delete," that's not a valid 
option, either (plus, it's requires javascript to close the new window, etc)

If anyone has suggestions for better layouts, I'm all ears, but all of 
the cool stuff I can think of requires javascript, or adding several 
extra steps (which might be a decent tradeoff, since MOST people have 
javascript enabled)
