I'm not hacking on the demux though, so I'd need to pass this information
from the demux (eg, ogg or mkv) to the codec.

But thinking about it, it makes more sense to have the slides separate
from any possible video, so they can be turned on/off separately, since
enabling them would obscure the video, unlike traditional subtitles, so
I'll go with the separate vout in the patch, if it's considered clean.
