Easy there fella, no need to get upset.  Your very first message was
asking if there's a way to change VDR's behavior because it deleted
other crap you put there (whether on accident or on purpose), no?
Later a comment about certain plugins needing to have empty
directories in VDR's recording dir, which prompted my "poor plugin
design" comment.  If you can already define where these plugins put
the empty dirs, why not make it easy on yourself and just put it
somewhere else since VDR's recording dir isn't appropriate to begin
with?

I agree with you about one thing though, there are all different kinds
of users so if you're dealing with pre-made packages/distributions
then yeah do whatever best suits that need.  I personally have no
interest in those but I'm not knockin' anyone who does. Whatever
method people use to get their VDR going! ;)
