And on that note.... :)

My idea for merging the transcoding and commercial detection queues includes
possibly adding in support for external "jobs" to run when a recording
finishes.  So you could automatically callout to a script which runs nuvexport
after a recording finishes, or a script that archived a recording, etc..
