Since when has what's actually happening stopped people from posting
about what they think is happening?  :)  Remember, there are many
0.20-fixes users who have EIT-only video sources and who still don't
know they need to run mythfilldatabase (which is why I moved that
cleanup to the backend in trunk).

Only on trunk, though.  You were right about mfdb doing it for 0.20-fixes.

Daily.  Only those that ended sometime earlier today are retained (those
ending before today started are removed).
