I used it first :)

It had no orphans - just the non-truly-deleted recordings from the database
are still there.  Back in 0.27 (I believe - maybe 0.25 or 6) they made the
decision to get rid of that option.  The settings are still honored, but
not accessible from the config screens any longer, so I was more just
looking for the raw data,values to put into the settings table manually :)
