Nice feature.  I assume only in SVN, as I haven't noticed it in .20.  I'll 
look into it further now though.
I've also considered a nice addition would be a delete after x days.
I find after watching a show I like to keep it around a few days in case I 
want to check back on something.  After a few days I don't care anymore and 
delete it.

I have one of the remote's coloured buttons (hauppauge) setup to toggle time 
Press it, and then use right/left to increase/decrease the stretch.
You might wish to look into that.
