RTFM means read the fucking manual not read the fucking manpage, the manual 
contains both manpage and the html documentation.

form cd-dvd.html:
Q: What about subtitles? Can MPlayer decode them?
A: Yes it can (or at least it would be able to) but there is no DVD subtitle 
displaying functionality inside MPlayer (DVD subs are stored as images, not 
text!). However it's a planned feature (at the time of libvo2).

The only thing the manpage tells about DVD subtitles is the -sid option, 
which should not be in the manpage as it's a development switch currently 

(Gabucino: remove it please from the manpage until implemented).

good idea, then I wouldn't have to reply to 
users-that-don't-read-the-fucking-manual myself, they just would have to read 
the footer of their own mails to get the idea.

I think it would be a good idea.
