As I've gushed here before, Find One (plus its first cousins 'treat
same callsign as the same channel' and 'multiple tuner/rule/property
prioritiy weights') is one of MythTV's three killer apps, along with
seamless FireWire/ATSC recording and realtime commflagging (heck,
commflagging as it stands, period). Now, if some kind soul were to
step up to the plate and add a Find One showing of this Episode . . .

Ooh, I like this idea. It seems to me this would solve two issues:
* End the the confusion about what MythWeb's 'Delete + Rerecord' and
its mythfrontend counterpart mean
* Also, help answer the question on whether MythTV will automatically
rerecord autoexpired programs.
* Eliminate the current ambiguous situation, wherein the rule vanishes
not actually *right* after a recording is completed but at some
seemingly-time a few hours afterward.
Some adjusting would have to be done with the "Record once every
day/week" rule so that it would not record multiple instances before
the first one is deleted.
