You mean a subtitle-position option which works like
video-title-position (top, bottom, top-left...) ?

The point of this patch is to address the item "Subtitles under the
video" on the Bounties page. Nothing is mentioned there about adding
such an option. But I will take a look at it. If it turns out to be
nontrivial I will leave it till I start working on "Dual subtitles
support". These two may be too related to be done separately.

These are two different things.

Even if we add a subtitle-position option the core has to know whether
the vout is capable of displaying subpictures outside the video area
or not.

Yes the --align option works too.
