 Is it posible to convert a .srt subtitle directly to XSUB?

 I know it can't, because srt are not bitmap, but the "subtitles" filter
 can render text subs to bitmaps and hardsub them to the video, so if they
 are converted to bitmaps they should be encoded as XSub...

 Or, should I export srt to bitmaps and somehow embed them as they were


 Summary of the bug:
 How to reproduce:
 ffmpeg -i input -vf subtitles=%~nsx1:si=1 -scodec xsub output
