   I've got one better.

   Have a "default delete type".

   This could be none, delete permanently or allow to re-record.

   This would be handy for avoiding those little accidents where
you meant to do one type of delete and end up doing another. The
UI would be different depending on the delete type of the recording
or the recording rule.

   The old interface would pop up if that field is NULL.
