Yep.  You specify on the rule whether to flag commercials.  You can also 
specify that a channel is commfree.  Then, when you have an "all 
channels" rule that records your show on a channel with commercials, it 
will be flagged.  However, if Myth records the same show on a channel 
with no commercials, Myth knows to skip commflagging.
