Right, as may not be clear, this is the goal. My impression is a
significant proportion of myth users (perhaps the majority) put myth
files on a disk partition dedicated only to myth. Indeed, they often
put it on a disk-spanning lvm dedicated only to myth.
As such, the space is for nothing else, and so why not have it always
fully in use, until myth needs it for something new, which is what
the autoexpire function does.
However, for those who don't operate this way, it does now appear clear
they would want an option to turn it off or limit it.
