Yes, I'll be changing recorded to use a single recordedid, rather than 
the chanid/starttime.  But, as Chris mentioned, videos and recordings 
will have distinct IDs, as they will still be distinct items.  Much of 
the other "supporting" metadata, though, will be shared.

And I got a bit distracted with real life, too, but should be working on 
this after 0.27.
