What happens when:
1. A show is recorded by, and stored on, a slave backend properly.
2. Sometime later, a frontend notes 'that recording is missing'. Maybe
because the slave -be is down, the nfs share had an issue, whatnot. So,
the front end user, unaware of technical detail, deletes the listing
because they think it's just screen clutter.
3. When the slave 'comes back' or otherwise the recording access issue
is fixed-- what happens?
a) the program listing 'reappears' in the front end -- or
b) the recording gets deleted automagically as there is no link to it in
the directory holding the recordings -- or
c) there is no link to the recording and its file nevertheless takes up
be space forever. -or
d) there's this really cool little script that creates a list of orphan
recordings someone here knows about??
e) Fill in this blank.
