Hmm, I think that the problem here is that the diff does not show the
whole description:

  -subalign <0-2> (OSD only)
    Specify  which  edge of the subtitles should be aligned at the
    height given by -subpos.
      0    Align subtitle top edge (original behavior).
      1    Align subtitle center.
      2    Align subtitle bottom edge (default).

Does this really fail to be clear?
