Let's just make this as clear as I can in my own understanding of this.
The scheduler does not take global start early and end late time into
consideration at all. It is not designed to affect the scheduler and
changing it to do so hijacks the purpose of this feature. While it
comes up again and again that people want a feature that does affect
scheduling, this feature already exists as the per-recording start early
and end late times and can be effectively used for most situations.
Myth is nothing if not flexible and many design decisions in the
scheduler are made to provide the best possible automatic decisions
while making it possible for human intervention to resolve conflicts.
We can leave it up to the developers that support the scheduler to
decide on any proposed patches, but given the past discussions on the
issue, I know that the existing feature will not be used to serve the
purposes proposed in this thread.
