Well, that took about ten minutes... so now I'll probably
spend more time on mail than code ;-).

This prototype patch just finds the search rules in 'record'
and makes a sortedList item for any matching recordings. The
search title is reformatted like this "(Pilot Episodes)" to
show that it isn't a normal show title and to force them to
sort alphabetically first.
