Do you have a time machine? Should just require a trip to the future.
If you don't mind coming back to let me know when I finish that code,
I'd be very grateful to know. :)

Or perhaps you've seen the commented out line in
const QStringList StorageGroup::kSpecialGroups = QStringList()
// << "Thumbnails"
<< "DB Backups"
which I put in place--along with the commented "DB Backups" line--as an
example of how to initialize the list with multiple values, since when
my patch for special group creation went in, the only special storage
group was LiveTV. I thought I would have the Thumbnails storage group
code (which allows users to specify a storage group in which to store
thumbnails--regardless of recording location--providing /many/
benefits). It turns out I got initial automatic backup (before upgrade)
support complete before the Thumbnail support.
Or maybe you just remembered my promises on the list and assumed I had
already followed through with code. :)
