That bit is copied straight out of dvdsub.c - how should it go?

ffplay doesn't have any option to show subtitles currently - all I've 
added is another subtitle decoder. One way to test the decoding is to 
compile with DEBUG_SAVE_IMAGES defined, and it'll save each subtitle it 
comes across as a png. Alternatively the output can be fed into an encoder 
with ffmpeg - although the only encoder currently is Fabrice's dvb 

How hard would it be to add subtitle support to ffplay? If it's not too 
tricky, I might be able to manage it...
