IIRC, during video playback a full screen refresh is triggered anyway 
for each frame, at least on the wince port. So, throwing away the 
copying around of memory for the subtitles (wait... what subtitles in 
bs1?) would actually be faster than the ... erm ... the old way of 
rendering subtitles which I haven't seen :-)
