Along the same lines, a "mark as watched" item could be useful for
situations where there is more than one user on the machine. Say user
A has watched the recording but user B also wants to watch it. It
would be useful if myth could remember who has watched what. This
could be achieved by letting each person mark a recording as watched
and not deleting it until both users have done so.
