[mythtv-users] Can mythrename.pl work with multiple storage locations?

I'm running 20.2--so I don't use the multiple storage locations feature 
in SVN. I have three backends each with their own local recording 
storage, and I use a 'crossbar' architecture of NFS shares so that each 
BE has access to all recordings.

This works well enough for scripts, but it's somewhat problematic when I 
want to access a particular recording directly via NFS/SMB share, since 
I have to hunt through each servers' recordings to find the desired file.

I'd like to run mythrename.pl with the --link function and have it 
create an 'aggregate' folder with symlinks pointing to multiple BE's. 
The problem is that mythrename is programmed to only operate locally, 
and to delete existing symlinks in the target dir (which prevents me 
from just running it once on each machine).

Has anyone done this already, or can anyone provide suggestions? How 
does mythrename work with the multiple storage locations feature in SVN?
