If I were to go that direction, I would be more or less recreating
functionality that exists between user jobs and mythtranscode--
When/if the transcode functionality is folded into the backend someday
and can be easily called, I can see having a user-defined export path,
but for right now, this is purely for exporting a recording as-is.
For now, if one wants commercial cut/container format
changes/transcode, they should set up a user job to do so, then run
the export when ready.
