Hi, Remi,

I designed the changes so that none of the current consumers of the API
will be impacted.

Enabling dual subtitles will not affect the others (like the remote control
or lua scripts), because there is another requirement: to temporarily
enable multitrack selection using the new call I added. The UI and hotkeys
use this but none of the others do.

I do agree however that your suggestion is more fitting (but require a bit
more logic from each consumer that supports selecting multiple tracks)
