Since I exctract subtitles from my recording and dvdrips into
srt-files to get a better looking font for the subtitles I end up with
a bunch of srt-files in both the recordings and mythvideo dirs. These
are never deleted, I often clean up a lot of these.

Granted, this is not really a Mythtv-problem (and no broken code)
since I create these files myself, but it would probably not be much
of a patch to insert code to delete .srt-files at the same time that a
recording or a video is deleted.
