I agree.  Similarly, "find once" rules should be deleted once they have
found and recorded the show.

It doesn't seem to be the case for me - I have some "find once" rules
showing up in mythweb that I know have already recorded the show in

Sure, I want Myth to remember that I've recorded the program, but I
think the rule should get deleted once it has served it's purpose.  I'm
guessing fewer rules makes life easier for the scheduler.

It's not that difficult to go into mythweb, sort by rule type, and
delete a load of stuff every now and again, but it's something that
could be automated.
