For it. The original commit struck me as odd from the get-go.
The options were broken out into bit flags but then the widget
lumped them back together again(?). The issue is almost more
a matter of page space on the wizard. The other thing is I
suppose that at least one view should be selected. For now
I'll put the checkboxes on the top of the Watch List page and
call the page "View Recordings (Views)" or something.

That would be great. I look forward to your solution.

Well, they could be still edittable in the options. This may help
with initial setup and provide help text. I need to have other
settings for watchList anyway and have them only appear when it
is selected.

Both. I'll work on adding the searches view and you should add
the popup'n'toggle to your TODO.
