I'm not sure I agree. With the new season, a number of shows are being
re-broadcast on the weekend, and the scheduler is making heavy use of
them. So your desision not to record a show today depends on the
accuracy of data up to a week ahead. I'd kind of like to know if those
rebroadcasts go away while there's still time to record the original.

I think that liquidity is an argument in favour of refreshing more
often. I'm half tempted to run with --refresh-all for the first few
weeks of the season!
