I wanted to get this out of the core VDR code. It was
a makeshift solution in times where disk sizes were still relatively small.
Nowadays we have disk sizes in the terabyte range, which should be enough for
a VDR.

It is certainly not enough for me, and I will never run VDR without being able
to spread directories over disks. I always have several disks, right now 4
of them. When the capacity of modern disks sharply increases, I remove my
oldest disk or the one most aged (smartctl) and add a new one. Over the
years, this has proven to be very simple and reliable. Your removal of
functionality makes that impossible.

All I did was to remove the functionality from the core VDR code and provide
a plugin interface that can be used to re-implement it. I'm pretty sure somebody
will write such a plugin (and it will probably have tons of setup parameters,
bells and whistles ;-).
