Most use vi/emacs. As for source files, they are all in

This is my list of things that I hope to get done sometime:

I lump this in with "make it more like Watch Recordings". It is currently
this way for DVDs.

Personally, I dislike the way it is in Watch Recordings, the few requests
for this feature seem to want something more like what you would find in a
music player.

Based on the file modification time?
