Last time I used mmrecov, it was to transfer indexes from an old server to its 
new replacement. Yes - mmrecov took a few minutes and the subsequent nsrck -L 7 
took hours.

In this particular instance, I already have my indexes as well as all license 
data, etc., (including non-applicable jukebox configs, etc., etc.) from the 
/nsr/* tarball. That's why I didn't see any need to run mmrecov at all. I was 
just going to remove all invalid configs, re-config and go from there.

However, at this point (naturally! :-)) I'm tied up on a production issue 
elsewhere and will get back to this issue ASAP. In the meantime, my eval period 
is about to run out in two days, so I'll just start again with a fresh reload 
of /nsr.
