Specifically using "mythrename.pl --link" (with appropriate additional
arguments) and using "cp -L" to copy the file to the new location.

The hard part is deleting the file correctly to ensure all metadata is
removed as well as the file itself.  Doing this from the shell with wget
and MythWeb isn't too tough (especially since you can pull the required
information to identify the video directly from the filename--assuming
you didn't change it with mythrename.pl without using --link).
