Would be much easier to specify a script for the mythfilldatabase path 
and have the script call mythfilldatabase and then run the mysql client 
to update the program table.  Hacking the mfdb code would have to be 
done for every version of Myth you use from now until you quit watching  

(Change oldrecorded and recorded once when you put the script in place 
and they'll be fixed forever.)
