Right.  That's why the "Weighted time/priority combination" method 
exists--so you can have it delete your oldest ones first, but prefer 
deleting a "slightly" newer recording if its record priority 
(importance/value to you) is lower.  Slightly in quotes because you can 
make slightly pretty huge with the priority weight.
