This is a good point, particularly if you use two recorders (e.g. audio
recorded plus video camera) to record the same session. I use 'v' and 'a' to
distinguish these. In this respect, it is the recording _session_ that's
primary, not the actual recording.


09=year (full date is in metadata)
10=recording session
A=part of recording session

e.g. recording session may have taken place at X place but over two hours we
recorded 3 stories A, B, C.
