Do you want to keep the subtitles graphical, or convert them to text?
I think I have a conversion process worked out to get them to text
which I am going to try some more later on today:

spuxml to .srtx)-->.txts+.srtx-->(srttool)-->.srt

Bit wacky, but I think it'll work. Going to vobsub would probably be
preferable, so if you see how that could happen, please say.
