good point. this gets less convenient with nfsv4, though, which i am using --
so i have to go the symlink route.
i am wondering why things like movie posters, or non-recording videos need to
have the full path in the db? couldn't the settings relating to a host have
the "prefix to the posters"... value in the db. we do have to set it anyway,
but i wish it wouldn't store the whole value, just the 0123456.jpg or
