The undelete plugin restored accidentally deleted recordings.

When VDR deletes a recording, it is not actually deleted, but marked for later deletion VDR. From time to time, when VDR has nothing else to do, it start to really delete those marked recordings.

This plugin can unmark recording and VDR won't delete them anymore. Also marked recording can be really deleted.
