AFAIK VDR burn plugin handles it like this:
ProjectX is used to extract .sup files from the stream.
pxsup2dast [1] is used to convert .sup files into spumux format.
spumux is used with mplex to add the subs as dvd subtitles into the mpeg

The commandline interface of ProjectX works fine with GCJ 4.1.2 here.
