Instead of two links on the main page to each connection, I'd suggest
adding something in the Guacamole User Menu (toggled via Ctrl-Alt-Shift) to
start/stop the recording.  This seems like the perfect place for that, and
there'd be no need to have a second link on the home page, which would
probably just cause confusion for people who didn't know what a screen
recording is or why they'd want it.
