enhancement: allow recording of parts of programs

Description

Enhancement suggestion...

Because the local FTA EPG data is not entirely trustworthy, lead in and lead out additions are a useful thing here. Unfortunately that means that a tuner can not be used for consecutive time slots. The short overlap causes a conflict. An alternate scheduling strategy would be to allow recording part of the lower priority program.

Some types of program are only sensibly recorded as an all-or-nothing deal, but others can miss large chunks and still be worth watching. Typically all-or-nothing type programs would be given a higher priority. An extra flag for all-or-nothing versus allow-recording-of-fragments (defaulting to all-or-nothing) could also help here.

Yet another strategy would be to allow lead in and lead out times to have a lower priority than that of the main program.
