For repeats the description often changes, but you can usually rely on
the episode name (aka subtitle) not to change. For a lot of my
schedules I have changed the default match rules from 'subtitle and
description' to 'subtitle' - this prevents a lot of manual episode
deletion after the fact :-)

Can't see anything like that in the xml. I don't think the myth
support for series link is present in 0.20.2 which is what I'm running
right now so doesn't really make any difference.

To be honest, most series record just fine matching on title +
subtitle alone without the additional link information (if I
understand what it's about).
