It is removed.  Answering when it will be removed is a bit more 
complex.  However, note that you /must/ (if using 0.20-fixes or below) 
run mythfilldatabase to do this and other periodic database maintenance 
(in SVN trunk--and, therefore, in the upcoming 0.21 release, all the 
cleanup has been moved to the backend, so it will be done 
automatically).  If you don't need to run mythfilldatabase for listings 
(i.e. you're using EIT only), make sure all your sources are set to "EIT 
only" or "No grabber" and run mythfilldatabase once every (day|couple 
days|week|month) or just once and wait for 0.21 to be released.

But, just because a recording just finished does not mean you can run 
mythfilldatabase immediately and clean out that old rule...  (Again, 
when is more complex.)
