Yes, that sounds handy. The bar that MythTV shows when you're deleting
programs currently only shows 0-100% full, but it would be nice to show
more information in that bar. With a little extra color, it could
differentiate between the consumed space it can't reclaim and the
consumed space that's automatically reclaimable. I don't think there's
a way to do that without writing SQL, but I bet the MythTV devs would
like that feature too.
