If I can add one more thing:

At the moment I am not too unhappy with the current setup,
but I have noticed that when watching a show in HD the subtitles
end up in a narrow area on the screen with plenty of room
on the sides. I presume it is because they are formatted
for the "normal" resolution where you need two lines to
display the whole text.

So the question is:

- Would it be (or is it already?) possible to wrap
  two lines of text into one if it fits on the screen?

Using 0.26 at the moment but considering upgrading.
