Correct. I knew that and just wanted to demonstrate that the
search rule items could be added. I also know that I didn't
bother with a globalsetting option and I hadn't looked at anything
concerning title sorting within the groups (though there may not
actually be any issues here). The "ten minutes" comment was that
it didn't take much code, I was up to speed on what was needed
here and I didn't do the complete job.

Hey, I've pondered this =). The early version you saw was called
" Suggested" with a leading space. I want it to sort first and
the space wins. The space is still there in " Watch List" but I
strip it out before display.

Parenthesis would make it look like another rule result but I
assume the real question is 'should there be demarcation for
lists that are not titles'. What about "All Programs" and
"Default"? Should these have [], <>, ->, *, or something that
points out that these are special lists and not a show title,
recgroup or category?

Oh, you can trim it to the things you'd like me to do for you
then cat it to /dev/null ;-).
