No. The transcode loses the DVB subtitle stream in both lossless and
MPEG-4 transcodes. In fact, the mere existence of that stream (or
perhaps a second voice channel, I haven't really investigated) screws
up transcodes totally on my 0.20-fixes installation and those Finnish
channels (YLE) which use DVB subtitling.
