include a subtitle that is not hardcoded into the main movie.  In other
words, if I play it with VLC, I can choose to enable it or not.

if you have the documentation, you can read menc-feat-extractsub.html, or
you can read it online here

add this line in your command:
-vobsubout <filename> -vobsuboutindex <index> -sid <subindex>
filename: file name you wish, eg "eagle eye", i think it is you should use
same value with -o value
index: index of sub in outputed file. initially you should give 0, and
increment it as you add another sub, of different language of course.
subindex: subtitle index number from source file

if you just want to dump all sub, you can use this:
for %index in (0,1,<max index>) do mencoder -oac copy -ovc copy -o nul
<filename, or maybe dvd command> -vobsubout <subfilename> -vobsuboutindex
%index -sid %index
