Any hints on where to look for a solution to this problem?

I have trawled through the mytharchive script searching for code regarding
identification of subtitles, but I only found code related to the handling
of DVB subtitles *after* they were selected for processing:( Where is the
code that selects the relevant subtitle streams?

I can't understand why teletext is treated as a subtitle stream in the first
place? - I know it can contain subtitles, but there is no way Mytharchive
can tell which page holds the subtitles anyway, so in my opinion it never
makes sense to include it in a DVD project?
