I don't see the point of merging record and timeshift. I do see the 
point of enabling both, and that's what should be done in the end. 
Also, AFAIK, neither of them do anything until pause resp. the record 
hotkey are triggered.

Enabling SAP is easy from the playlist. Enabling timeshift is hardly 
possible, and was so far not possible for only SAP announces.

Also, the setting already is stored in vlcrc.

Then it is up to him not to trigger timeshifting.
