I *like* auto-sub with exact name matches. What I don't like is
randomly picking a sub file with a name that's "sort of close" to the
filename of the movie. I don't use silly windows conventions for
warezing movies on p2p like
ThEmAtRiX.[[SUpaH_ELiTE_release_gr0up]].divx5.ac3.avi; I just name my
files with clean, sane, proper names to begin with.

So, what I propose is an option to disable the "fuzzy" matching...
