I think that's fine. After looking this and the orginal commit over, I
am wondering if the  change would have been better to set
recorded.preserve = 1 which would eliminate the recording from being
included in the autoexpire maxepisodes count as well as this scheduler
This would also have the side-effect/benefit of keeping the original
around until the user did get a second copy of the recording and deleted
the original manually rather than having the recording get bumped off
because of the regular maxepisodes or autoexpire processes if it took
a while to get a new copy of the desired recording.
