I thought of that too, but as Timothy wrote, search timers also tend to
generate less useful names like "Thu_04.02.2010-20:00" or all the
useless stuff that TV stations use as episode name.

A better way would be to shorten the folder part and the name
dynamically, so that at least a part of both is visible. Like shortening
aaaaaaa~bbbbbbbb~cccccccc~dddddddd to aaaa...cccc~dddd...


Cheers,

Udo
