FWIW, the entire OSD is being rewritten right now ( 
http://svn.mythtv.org/trac/browser/branches/libmythui-osd ), and I'm 
sure the current (extremely-low-level) code that handles 
caption/subtitle drawing will be modified to use the higher-level 
approach provided by mythui.

Therefore--unless Mark K. disagrees--you should probably direct any 
efforts at improving subtitles/captions toward that branch, once that 
branch has usable renderers for your testing.

(Though if you find a non-intrusive change for a small bug that fixes 
the issue, I'm sure it will be applied to -fixes.  Anything more than a 
little change, however, is likely to be thrown away with the old 
OSD/caption/subtitle code.)
