I disagree. With external subtitle files, the user intentionally
causes them to be loaded by putting a .srt (or whatever) file with the
exact same base name in the same directory as the movie. On the other
hand, with ogm, the user can't just rm/mv the .srt file to keep
mplayer from auto-loading subs for that one file.

As I said before, the new behavior is consistent with dvd subtitles,
so my vote is to keep it.
