Well, as much as I hate to say it, I'm not sure these options are  
going to pop up out of the ground any time soon. The black-and-white  
subtitles already implemented in MPlayer are pretty readable as-is,  
and with a ton of other large projects being pushed (GMplayer, DVD  
Menu support (though that one is either going to not happen, or is a  
long way off), h.264, etc. etc.) it doesn't seem like full SSA/ASS  
support is a high priority.
