There's no patch.  Each time I started on it, someone talked me out of
writing it because there's really not any big benefit to it (especially
when compared to the amount of work/code required).

Conversely, where is the benefit to making the change?  The recordings 
directory is never intended to viewed directly.  Such a change should be 
purely cosmetic, cleaning up a folder that should never be accessed 
anyway.  If you _do_ think you want to access that folder, you should 
really be accessing formatted links generated by mythlink.pl.
