I was about to bring this very same reason to keep multiple files.
With the increase in recording sizes, it would even be a good thing to 
add this patch in the VDR core.

On the other hand, with the increase of storage availability, I'd be 
satisfied with just leaving the file(s) uncut, and add in the core the 
possibility to watch a recording continuously by skipping the cut marks 
(I think there is a patch or plugin for this).
