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.
