Feature. Sometimes the file is on a remote frontend or an nfs mount. If you 
delete the database info without being able to delete the file at the same 
time, you may end up with lots of used disk space that Myth can't do anything 
about, so the sane thing to do is to only delete if both the metadata and 
file can be deleted at the same time.
